Temperatures are set to plummet today (Sunday, March 7) amid a cold snap that will bring a sting in the tail of the departing winter across South London.

Lows of close to freezing (one or two degrees Celsius) are forecast by the Met Office across a number of South London boroughs for the dawn and after sunset.

The skies over the South of the city will likely remain cloudy through Sunday, but no rain is forecast according to the government weather agency.

Nevertheless the cold will likely be felt sharply by people in the South of the city, coming just days after highs of 18 degrees Celsius that topped equivalent temperatures in Spain recently.

Indeed, the Met Office said in their detailed forecasts for South London that the single-digit temperatures in the region will "feel like" one or two degrees Celsius through most of Sunday.

Among the lowest temperatures forecast by the agency include one degree Celsius in Croydon (2am) and two degrees in Sutton and Dartford from 2am onwards.

Highs of temperature for Sunday will likely remain below 10 degrees, meanwhile.

According to the Met Office, the highest temperatures in South London today are due to be around just six degrees Celcius, which is forecast from 3pm in Greenwich, Lewisham, Kingston and Richmond alike.
