UK set to feel coldest night of Autumn so far

29th Nov 16 10:52 am

Make sure you stay warm tonight as temperatures will rapidly fall

Tuesday night is set to be the coldest night this autumn as temperatures could drop to below -8C in some parts of the country.

The huge drop in temperature has prompted health officials to warn that the sub-zero conditions can be fatal. They have urged people to look out for elderly relatives and neighbours during the chilly conditions.

The Met office says day time temperatures on Tuesday will struggle to reach 6C (43F) on a sunny day in England and Wales, with Scotland expecting milder conditions of 9C (48F) during the day.

Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson told the Telegraph: “We’re pretty confident it will be one of, if not the, coldest night of the autumn so far.”

“For the bulk of the country, it’s going to be a cold day. Across much of the southern parts of the country we’re expecting harsher frost.”

In major cities on Tuesday, London is expected to hit a temperature of just 5C (41F), Edinburgh will see a high of 7C (45F) and Manchester is expected to be the chilliest, only reaching a mere 3C (37F).
