UK set to be colder than the South Pole leading into the weekend
January 14, 2016
Britain’s temperatures are set to plummet even further due to freezing arctic winds that will leave the country colder than the South Pole leading into the early hours of Saturday morning.
The mild -13C temperatures that are found in the South Pole at the moment will seem relatively warm compared to the -15C that are expected in northern parts of the country Friday evening and early Saturday. Northern England will take the brunt of these frigid arctic winds with amber warnings for snow being issued for some areas of Scotland and the Borders overnight, coming into effect at 7pm and lasting until 9am on Friday morning.
Some areas are looking at getting between 3cm and 6cm of snow - and higher places could get more.
The Met Office said: "We are looking at a possible 10cm of snow in elevated areas of above 300m so we are advising people to be aware."
It’s not just Scotland that will experience snow, yellow warnings for snow have been issued in other areas including the North East and Yorkshire with the cold weather making it as far south as the East Midlands and the capital.
Strong gales of up to 50mph are expected in East Anglia with severe weather warnings for rain in place for southern parts of England making for a real mixed bag of weather across the country.
Don’t miss a beat in this unpredictable weather, visit Jolly Brolly and pick up a large umbrella to protect you from the wintery weather.
