LONDON Jan 12: From tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon, the Met Office is warning that the West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, London, South East England and South West England regions will experience cold weather.
The government has issued a Level 2 alert warning of the plummeting temperatures, urging people to check on vulnerable friends and family towards the weekend.
From 6pm on Thursday January 13 to 9am on Monday January 17, there is a risk of freezing conditions and prolonged periods of fog across the centre and south of the country, Metro News reported.
People who are vulnerable, such as the elderly and those with a health condition or reduced mobility, have been advised to hear their homes to at least 18°C.
Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Dan Rudman said: ‘Temperatures in central and southern England are expected to trend downwards from Thursday, with overnight minimum temperatures possibly getting to -4 °C in some rural areas, but widespread below-freezing conditions elsewhere overnight in the following days.
‘This will result in some harsh frosts and possible freezing fog in some places.
‘Temperatures will stay subdued through the next few days from Thursday in the alerted areas, with highs likely to remain in the mid-to-low single figures through the weekend, especially in places where any fog or low cloud lingers throughout the day.’
