Many in the UK have been issued ICE and snow warnings as the British prepare for “the coldest night of the season”.
Storm Arwen’s killer conditions caused a gust of nearly 100mph, causing temperatures to drop-and tonight could drop to a harsh -10 ° C.
Snow covered much of England as the icy plunge settled.
And “cold and freezing” weather is projected to last for another two weeks.
Ice yellow weather warnings cover central, eastern, southern, and northeastern Scotland.
They extend north from Aberdeen to Southampton on the Hampshire coast.
The condition is expected to be a “tricky trip” at least until 10 am tomorrow.
Snow alerts also cover central and northern England from Sheffield to Milton Keynes, where up to 2 cm of snow can fall.
Mercury plummeted to -6.4 ° C in Cambria and the highest temperature anywhere in the UK was only 8.5 ° C in Norfolk cromers last night as the bone-shaking chills took over.
Recorded at least -3C all night in Midlands, Yorkshire and Northumberland, and is set to stay chilly today and next week as well.
Southampton is expected to drop to -4C around 5am, where the snow in Scotland and northern England is what the Met Office forecasters call “the coldest night of the season”- It can go down to 10C. far”.
Tom Morgan, a forecaster for the Met Office, said:
“More winter weather is expected on Sunday, with snow expected to snow in the regions of Scotland and northern England, as well as parts of southern and central England.
“Scotland and parts of northern England where it’s snowing will be very cold tonight, and temperatures will certainly be below zero, down to -10 ° C. This will be the coldest night of the season.
“This is expected to be an exception, not a rule, but sub-zero temperatures will be widespread, including London and the southeast, where temperatures can reach -2 ° C.
“Even if you live in a city, you can expect to scrape frost, ice, and even snow from your car on Monday morning.”
Storm Erwen has already claimed the lives of at least three people, including the principal and his four fathers, Francis Lagan.
The “greatly beloved” principal was killed on Friday when a tree fell on his car in Antrim, Northern Ireland.
A 35-year-old driver also died in a similar situation at B977 in Aberdeenshire around 5:45 pm on Friday, with a third person fatally crushed by a fallen tree in Ambleside, Cumbria.
Strong winds are expected to continue to cause genocide after destroying some buildings and cars as velocities approach 100mph.
Over the weekend in Brisleywood, Northumberland, wind speeds reached a whopping 98mph, followed by a 92mph gust at Berryhead in Devon.
An 87mph wind was seen in Aulockhead, County Down. Meanwhile, gusts reached 81 mph in Aberporth and Dyfed and 79 mph in The Needles on the Isle of Wight.
In the chaos, more than 200,000 homes lost power.
Northern Powergrid said it had restored power to about 182,000 customers last night, but an additional 58,000 were affected.
Train and bus services have also seen widespread delays and cancellations, with urgent “don’t travel” warnings in some areas.
The Met Office summarizes the damage caused by the first-named storm of the season: strong winds and rain, sleet, and a mixture of snow “power outages, transportation disruptions, tree collapses, large coastal waves and blizzards. I received it. ” Some hills “.
A cold warning was issued by the UK Health and Safety Department on Friday and stayed there until Monday.
It kept warm and advised to pay attention to those who are most at risk from the effects of chilly conditions, such as the elderly and those with heart and lung problems.
The Met Office said this was due to a “Arctic shot” south of Britain.
Currently, it is feared that it will snow for two consecutive weeks in the aftermath of the killer storm and will continue until December.
WX charts show that winter weather will continue next Friday and affect England, Scotland and Wales.
And the British will be supported by the cold for a few weeks-because more snow is now predicted on December 13th.
This means that it can snow in the next two weeks and can cause transportation and travel problems.
