Thermometers will plunge this week with experts warning of a major winter freeze after the weekend.

Further heavy rain is forecast across the country from tomorrow with showers turning to snow in the north by Friday.

Up to two feet of snow is expected to settle in the Scottish Highlands with flurries expected further south next week.

The entire country faces sub-zero overnight temperatures with bitter winds and frost heralding the start of “proper winter weather”.

The chilly forecast comes as parts of Britain brave further heavy rain and gales as the cleanup from Storm Frank continues.

It comes as official figures reveal last month was the wettest and mildest December on record and the wettest month in history.

Average temperatures of 7.9C (46F) beat the previous record of 6.9C (44F) set in 1934 while 50 inches (1,289mm) of rain secured the wettest December ever.

Jim Dale, forecaster for British Weather Services, said the rest of January is shaping up to be stormy and much colder than of late.

He said: “We have another deep low coming in bringing more rain and strong winds at the start of next week.

So with snow predicted for Lancashire Monday and Tuesday next week you had better get yourself along to Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, and get your rock salt before it is to late.
