The mercury is currently at 11.3C ‑ two degrees above average for the time of year ‑ and, until at least Saturday, it is expected to hit highs of 15C. But this will drop to 9C from Sunday with temperatures dropping below zero at night.

Forecasters say a festive chill will be felt just days before the official start of meteorological winter on December 1.

Sarah Kent, of the Met Office, said: “On Sunday, it does look as though we are going to have high pressure to the west of Ireland, and that is going to bring a rather cold north to north-westerly air flow across much of the UK for a time.

“This colder spell is only likely to be brief as we will get milder air feeding back around the top of that high.

“If we get any showers coming in on us northerly, then the very highest ground in the north, such as the Scottish mountains, may well see some of the wintery weather, but just on the high grounds. Further south is more likely to be dry and chilly.”
