It’s going to be cold in Derby next week.

If you’re travelling to work or taking your kids to school after half term then you may need to prepare your de-icer and put on a few extra layers.

Temperatures will reach as low as 3C in the later hours of Sunday, according to the Met Office.

Because temperatures vary just a few feet above the ground, frost can form when the thermometer reads above freezing, 0C.

It will reach a high of nine degrees on Monday and the Met Office says temperatures are set to rise later in the week but could start dropping to lows of 7 degrees next Thursday.

A Met Office spokesperson said that it was “fair to say” that people will need to use their de-icer and put on a few extra layers.

He said: "Temperatures are going to be quite a contrast to what we have had previously.

“They are going to drop into single figures at the tail end of the weekend and through to the Monday.

“It will also be quite cloudy on the day, which will make it seem colder than it is. Because it has just been half term, parents will be preparing to do the school run again.

“You may need to be prepared in advance to put on some extra clothes or make sure your car is clear.

“Temperatures will begin to rise later in the week but it will still be cold on some days throughout.”

The weather this weekend is set to be mostly cloudy on Saturday reaching a high of 13C, whereas on Sunday it will brighten up, with temperatures as high as 12C.
