Be sure to wrap up warm as the Met Office is forecasting plummeting mercury up and down the country as the temperature drops to below zero all over and even as low as -7°C in parts of Scotland.

Clear skies today will mean a sunny day, and a starlit Bonfire Night, but clear skies also mean very cold temperatures. The chilly weather is in marked contrast to the warmest Hallowe’en ever last week, with highs of 21°C.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “On Wednesday we will see clear skies during the day, it will probably be the nicest day of the week. However at night many parts of the country will be below freezing. Even towns and cities will experience temperatures around 0°C.”

However, the clear skies won’t last for long, with rain moving in from the West from tomorrow, meaning that almost every part of the UK will experience rain on Thursday or Friday.
