The clocks are set to go back this weekend, and winter is wasting no time in wrapping its icy fingers around the UK with the first frost hitting a number of areas this weekend.

The Met Office has said that temperatures could drop to as low as minus 4 in some parts of the UK in the late hours of Sunday night, ahead of frost arriving on Monday morning.

That means, for many Brits, this weekend will signal the first frost of the season.

Before then, however, it looks like we’re in for a fairly dry weekend.

Speaking to Yahoo News, a Met Office forecaster confirmed that tomorrow will sees ‘highs of 15 degrees, with a band of cloud being seen around the M4 corridor’.

Still, it’s equally likely that there could be the first signs of winter for potential frost around the North Midlands tomorrow.

Saturday, meanwhile, is expected to be largely dry too – but with the chance of cloud and rain in the north west and Scotland.

Sunday is also expected to feel slightly colder as a pool of cooler air is brought down from the north, while the north itself is expected to see wintry showers.

Posting on Twitter, the Met Office wrote: ‘After a mild week for many, it’s going to turn #colder through the weekend – by Sunday night, many of us will see a #frost.’

And with that, we’re already dusting off our winter coats.
