Given the unpleasant chill in the air yesterday you would be forgiven for thinking it was February rather than May.
The wintry conditions saw frost on the ground in the coldest May morning for 17 years.
Temperatures dipped to -6c (21f) in the Scottish Highlands – the lowest figures for this month recorded in the UK since 1993.
Even in Suffolk, thermometers plunged to an unseasonal -4.1c (24.6f).
But there is brighter news on the horizon, with temperatures expected to rise from today, reaching the average for the time of year by the weekend.
