Meteorologists have said Thursday night will bring lows of -2C (35.6F) overnight, with the south of England seeing the worst of the cold weather.

Steven Keates, Met Office Marine Meteorologist, told Thursday night will chill the south of Britain.

He said: “Tonight – initially turning cold quite widely where skies are clear, but then temperatures recovering in the north as cloud spills in.

“Lowest temperatures (-2C) likely in southern England.”

Mr Keates added it will be “very windy across northern Britain this weekend, especially northern and eastern Scotland”.

Tony Zartman, Accuweather Meteorologist, also told Thursday night will see frost on the ground.

He said: “Areas of Wales and southern England, where there are clear spells Thursday night can have some frost, especially in spots protected by the wind.

“Temperatures across much of this area will be in the 30sF (0-5 C) for minimum temperatures Thursday night.

“Locations farther to the north and west will have more clouds, which will tend to result in higher temperatures and less opportunity for frost.”

John Hammond, from weathertrending, also said wind speeds will cause chills overnight.

He said: “The drop of 10 degrees or more will be quite a shock as temperatures tumble after such warm conditions recently.

“Blustery northwesterly winds will make it feel chillier, with snow possible on northern mountains and perhaps to lower levels, with overnight frost possibly becoming more widespread.

“Atlantic fronts are expected to bring rain from the west by the weekend.”

It comes as the weekend sees yellow weather warnings in effect for Northern Scotland.

The yellow warning from the Met Office lasts from 8pm on Saturday to 5pm on Sunday.

They said: “Very strong winds likely to result in some travel disruption and dangerous coastal conditions across northern Scotland.”

In the Met Office’s long range forecast for November 15 to November 29, they warned of “wintery showers”.

They said: “Through this period, there is an increased chance of wintry showers from the north and northwest, initially over higher ground but also a low risk at lower levels later in the month.

“While there is little sign of prolonged, widespread settled weather, conditions are likely to be less stormy and windy.

“Where there are more settled spells, frost and fog are increasingly likely, with temperatures slightly colder than average. Overall remaining drier than average.”
