Cold weather to return as temperatures set to plummet

Temperatures across Co Armagh and the entire UK are set to plummet this weekend.

It will be an abrupt end to the mild weather we have been experiencing over the last number of days.

We will see temperatures as high as 10 degrees over the next 24 hours but the weather is set to turn decidedly colder as the weekend approaches.

Saturday and Sunday will see northerly Artic air come in with the mercury levels to dip below zero, to a baltic minus two on Sunday.

And with that comes the Met Office’s obligatory weather warnings – particularly for ice.

There are a number of snow warnings in place but they are expected to hit the eastern coast of England and Scotland over the weekend, leaving Northern Ireland relatively unscathed this time around.

The beginning of next week will see temperatures return to normal for this time of year.
