This is not all. Polar vortex, which is sweeping across Europe and causing major travel chaos, is expected to bring down temperatures in the UK later this month.
Towards the end of January, there is an “increased likelihood of a change to colder weather becoming established generally, bringing an enhanced risk of frost, fog and snow” in the UK.
London, however, is set to be reasonably mild over the coming week with temperatures up to 10C.
