Warning to ‘gardeners, growers and farmers with young livestock’ as April temperatures drop

Farmers weather expert Garry Nicholson warned of cool weather for the rest of the month, which he said would ‘bring considerable wind chill and overnight frost, with impacts for gardeners, growers and those with young livestock’.

 

He said farmers should expect to see freezing overnight temperatures with many rural areas dropping as low as -3C.

 

"Last night, temperatures were near or below freezing for much of the UK,” Mr Nicholson said.

 

“Lowest temperatures were -5C in the Scottish Highlands, whilst in central England, it was -1C in Oxfordshire.

 

“Tonight, the coldest values will be across England & Wales, where skies stay clear, with widespread frost likely.”

 

Later this week, day time temperatures should peak at between 15 to 17C.

 

Frosty nights

Cooler air will however return from the north this weekend, with chilly temperatures expected to continue into next week.

 

Mr Nicholson added: “Frosty nights will be common, but we expect plenty of sunshine by day.

 

“Rainfall amounts will be generally small, although next week is looking more changeable, with showers often in the forecast.

 

“Snow is likely on the hills, possibly to lower levels in the north."
