Merseyside has been colder than parts of Russia such as Moscow today, as colder air from the north sent temperatures plummeting.

Arctic air meant that Monday morning got off to a very cold start and it was that cold that some lakes in Merseyside froze over.

The weather is set to be just as cold through Tuesday and with the wind chill temperatures could feel closer to -2C at times.

However, as the week progresses temperatures will become slightly milder, as a change in wind direction helps temperatures recover.

As the weekend approaches temperatures will be back into the high single fingers, as winds from a more westerly direction take over.

This means a return in wetter and windier weather, the Met Office say: “Wednesday, rain and cloud clearing later.

“Mainly dry with sunny spells on Thursday and some overnight fog. Turning wet and windy on Friday, after a dry start”.
