Bonfire Night is set to see an “Arctic blast” as temperatures could reach lows of -3C and Brits are being told wrap up warn if you’re out to watch the fireworks on Friday.

Aidan McGovern of the Met Office said, the “temperatures are below average and it’ll be distinctly cold in that northerly wind.”

On Friday some areas in the south will wake to a sub-zero temperatures, however it will be “largely a fine day.”

He added, “By Friday morning, in sheltered inland parts out of the wind, there will be a fairly widespread frost, with temperatures in the south as low as -3C.

“Friday is looking like another largely fine day. There’s plenty of sun around, particularly in the south.

“For Bonfire Night, most places are looking dry.

“It will be cloudier for the north and the west, with a few outbreaks of light rain, but clear and chilly elsewhere, so fine viewing conditions for fireworks.”

Some areas in the UK will see “heavy and persistent” rain over the weekend.

McGovern said, “There’ll be 80mm over some exposed hills,” he said.

“And it turns increasingly windy across western Scotland in particular.

“Northern Scotland will also be prone to gales on Saturday night and the early hours of Sunday.

John Hammond, of weathertrending, told the Mirror, “The drop of 10C or more will be quite a shock as temperatures tumble after such warm conditions recently.

“Blustery northwesterly winds will make it feel chillier, with snow possible on northern mountains and perhaps to lower levels, with overnight frost possibly becoming more widespread.

“Atlantic fronts are expected to bring rain from the west by the weekend.”
