“Severe Cold” For The Weekend As Temperatures To PLUMMET – “Deadly Conditions”

1icydd“Severe cold weather” is predicted this weekend, with temperatures expected to drop below freezing, prompting health officials to warn that the chilly conditions can be deadly.

Public Health England (PHE) have issued level two alerts for all regions – apart from the south of England – and have urged people to look out for their family, friends and neighbours.

“A lot of places will see temperatures hovering around freezing or just below but if we have got clear skies we may get to minus four or below,” Met Office spokesperson Nicky Maxey said. The plummeting temperatures will be caused by a easterly airflow which brings with it clearer and cooler conditions, leading to widespread frost.
