-4C as Arc­tic winds blast Bri­tain

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY STEPHEN HAY­WARD

THOU­SANDS of star­lings cre­ate mes­meris­ing pat­terns in the sky be­fore roost­ing un­der Aberys­t­wyth pier in west Wales last night.

They­have re­turned from sum­mer in Scan­di­navia and may need tostay even closer for warmth as blasts of Arc­ti­cair send tem­per­a­tures plung­ing across Bri­tain.

They could go as low as mi­nus 4C in Scot­land tonight – colder than Ice­land.

Wide­spread frost is ex­pected and gales of up to 50mph are feared in the North of Eng­land to­day.

Book­maker Coral said: “Odds of 10-11 sug­gest we will see snow in main­land UK be­fore the month is out.”
