With the mercury set to tumble below freezing by tomorrow and into Thursday across swathes of the country – Brits have been bracing themselves for an icy blast. But after this passes, the country looks set to be baked dry with temperatures looking to hit 10C (50F) and higher by the end of the month.

According to WXCHARTS, the weather is set to rise to above the seasonal average from Saturday – when temperatures hit 5C (41F).

From here, the forecaster is predicting that temperatures will continue an upward march – hitting a glorious 10C (50F) by the end of the month.

This news came after the UK experienced its warmest New Year’s Day on record, with a temperature of 16.2C (61.1F) recorded in St James’s Park, London.

The figure easily beat the previous record of 15.6C (60F), as the UK experienced “exceptionally mild” weather for the time of year.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, meteorology expert Jim Dale agreed with the assessment and said that “spring may have sprung early” this year.

He added: “There is still some way to go but I think it will start to get milder and not necessarily with the rain.

“I don’t see a catalogue of storms (hitting the UK).

“I think we going to see spring, spring early this year but with the caveat because winter isn’t over.

“I don’t see a catalogue of storms (hitting the UK).

“I think we going to see spring, spring early this year but with the caveat because winter isn’t over.

“You can always get that wintery weather coming back in February. A spike of wintery weather intrusion is still possible.

“It is on paper on the coldest month of the year.

“But it is starting to be less cold than it was historically.

“We are starting to see the start of spring (in February).

“You will get the cold nights – so it feels wintery at this moment in time but it is very British wintery.

“There is nothing imported from Scandinavian, the Arctic or Europe so it is very temperate winter weather.

“It is going to start pushing temperatures up to 10C, 11C and 12Cs instead of 6C, 7C and 8Cs.

“I suspect that spring will spring a little bit earlier this year but the caveat means that we can still get winter spikes.

“I think there are pleasant days to come.”
