After the floods, here comes the ‘Nightmare from the North’… A six-day shiver that will bring snow to the south and temperatures as low as -15C in some areas
- The freeze comes after days of heavy rain, high wind and flooding across the UK
- Parts of the country could expect to see their first snow of the winter season
- Nights could reach as low as -15C with daytime highs of just 1C in the North
Widespread flooding in parts of Britain is expected to give way today to winter’s second freeze, with an 800-mile-wide ‘Nightmare from the North’ bringing a six-day shiver and snow even for the South.
Nights as low as -15C will make some areas of Britain even colder than Antarctic research bases. Daytime highs will hit just 1C in the North.
