UK temperatures are set to plummet in the coming days with some forecasters predicting the mercury could slump to record lows.
The Met Office has predicted parts of the country, particularly in Scotland, could see temperatures as low as -3C today (Thursday, November 30). But bookmakers William Hill reckon it could get even icier – and have now made it an even-money chance for Brits see a chill of -10.4C or lower.
The last time temperatures sunk this low was on January 19, when the record was set for 2023 in Drumnadrochit, near Inverness. Lee Phelps, spokesperson for William Hill, said: "With reports a serious cold snap is expected to hit the UK before November is out, we are even-money about the mercury falling lower than this year’s record of -10.4C."

If the predictions were to come true, the UK would be colder than Iceland – which is expecting lows of -4C today.
The joint records for the all-time lowest temperature in British history were set in on January 10, 1982 and December 30, 1995, when the mercury dipped to a bone-chilling -27.2. Unsurprisingly both records were set in Scotland – the first in Braemar and the second in Altnaharra.
And while it's not likely conditions will get that cool, today is still looking to be icy. A yellow weather warning for snow is in place until 11am tomorrow (Friday, December 1) across much of the country, the Daily Star previously reported.
