BRITAIN is set to be battered by a “little ice age” and temperatures will plunge to -12C NEXT WEEK.
The rest of the week will be more mild weather before the weather turns far chillier with spells of snow.
The white stuff is expected to hit from November 24, with the sub-zero temperatures starting on November 23.
Freezing Arctic winds will take a grip on the country, with the mercury possibly dropping as low as -7C to -11C with the coldest conditions hitting Scotland.
