Temperatures in London to plummet to -2C as big freeze hits capital

Easter Sunday is here and beautiful weather is forecast for the capital.

Temperatures are set to hit 15C today (April 4) with no cloud until the later part of the evening and not a drop of rain forecast.

However, like the holiday, this weather isn’t set to last with some parts of London experiencing chilly lows of -2C as next week begins.

Amazingly, snow has even been forecast in parts of the country tonight as UK temperatures take a polar plunge.

It’s a world away from last week’s mini heatwave that saw highs of 24C, meaning Londoners will need to wrap up warm over the coming days.
