The UK's temperature has been rapidly declining over the past few weeks and it's only set to continue, according to reports.

Today's nippy weather is a sign of what's to follow for the rest of the month in bleak Britain, according to forecasters.

The UK is braced for the coldest November in a whopping nine years, with temperatures predicted to drop to as low as -4C on Guy Fawkes Night, which is tomorrow.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for today, warning us of heavy rain which is set to pelt parts of the country today.

They stated: "Rain will become prolonged and heavy at times during Sunday night and well into Monday across eastern Scotland, moving south into southeast Scotland during the day.

"15-25 mm of rain is expected widely, with the most exposed high ground seeing 40-60 mm.

"Strong east to northeasterly winds are also expected, particularly near coasts where gusts of 50 mph are likely during Monday afternoon."

Other forecasts have called the upcoming freezing weather the "Scandinavian Shiver", which is set to pull in sub-zero temperatures from Northern Europe.
