****** Icy blasts are set to send temperatures plunging to -6C as Britain faces a freezing weekend after the turbulence of Storm Brendan.
Wales, south-west England and Northern Ireland will be hit with frostyweatherconditions as the temperature drops to -2C to -4C in the countryside.
Snow is expected at the higher grounds in Scotland along with the blustery wind and gales around exposed the coast.
But thanks to the developing high pressure other areas in Britain will have a sunny clear day at around 6C to 8C.
But it will not last for long when widespread frost forms away from coastal areas, bringing inland temperatures as low as -6C.
BBC Weather’s Chris Fawkes said: “For Saturday, a big change for the weather picture is on the way thanks to the developing area of high pressure, that means we’ll have a lot of sunshine on all morning throughout to the afternoon.
“In fact, for many of the places, there will be barely a cloud in the sky.
