A Met Office spokesman said: “High pressure has become established to the north-east of the UK and this is dragging in colder air from Scandinavia.
“It will take some time for the cold air to filter across the whole of the UK but by Friday, much of the UK will struggle to see daytime temperatures above around 3 °C.
“Brisk winds across England and Wales will make it feel much colder.
“It will remain cloudy too and we could see snow showers across eastern parts of the country in particular.”
Will Lang, Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: "This is a different taste of winter to the snow and ice we have seen recently.
“These largely dry, settled and cold conditions may not be as disruptive to travel but they do present concerns surrounding the health and well being of the elderly and vulnerable."
A Department of Health spokesperson said: "Severe cold weather can be dangerous, especially for the very young or very old or those with chronic disease.
