Arctic air set to send temperatures plummeting on Wirral


Wirral enjoyed one of the hottest days of the year on Saturday.

Temperatures reached 21C as warm air from southern Europe heated up the UK.

Plenty of sunshine made it perfect conditions to soak up the sun in the garden.

However, the warm spell isn’t set to last as colder air is on the way.

Arctic air will send temperatures plummeting from Sunday as colder air from the north filters down over the UK.


Daytime temperatures will drop to 12C on Sunday an by the beginning of the new week temperatures will have dropped by 10C.

Nighttime temperatures will drop as low as just 3C with the potential of frost at times.

The Met Office say “A markedly cooler day enhanced by a keen breeze from the northeast. Patchy rain during the morning should clear in the afternoon, with some sunny spells arriving by the evening.

“Monday looks breezy with sunny spells but feeling cold with frost overnight. Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry with sunny spells. Temperatures slowly recovering.”
