Pre­pare for mer­cury to plunge as low as zero

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

The thou­sands of hardy souls set to brave the night in their sleep­ing bags are be­ing ad­vised to wrap up warm as the weather fore­cast for the week­end is set to de­te­ri­o­rate.

The tem­per­a­ture in Dundee is not due to rise higher than 7C to­day ac­cord­ing to the Met Of­fice, and could sink to 0C overnight.

Cou­pled with the wind, at some point dur­ing the early hours of Sun­day morn­ing, the tem­per­a­ture is fore­cast to feel as cold as -2C.

Ac­cord­ing to the me­te­o­rol­o­gists it is likely to be dry, but given Scot­land’s un­pred­i­cat­able cli­mate, wa­ter­proof cloth­ing would be rec­om­mended.

Coun­ter­part sleep­ers in Ed­in­burgh will not fare much bet­ter, with the mer­cury only set to reach one or two de­grees higher than in Dundee.

Aberdeen is fore­cast to feel as chilly as Dundee, while in Glas­gow there is a chance of evening rain.
