BBC Weather: Arctic conditions to provoke travel chaos across UK amid December deep freeze | Weather | News


UK has been hit by freezing fog this morning, with fears that this December could be one of the coldest on record. The Met Office recorded an astonishing -10.3C in Scotland overnight, the UK’s “lowest temperature since last winter”. This comes as the latest BBC forecast showed that temperatures will struggle to beat the cold, amid an influx of Arctic-like conditions.

The BBC’s meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas saud: “We have had some sharp frost, and some fog and mist, across the country so far today.

“It is still very cold because there is this cold air mass with us.

“This week will be predominately dry but we will see one or two rogue showers through parts of the Midlands and the north.

“It will be even chillier in areas where the morning fog and mist are slow to clear.”

Keith-Lucas warned that temperatures will struggle to break 6C to 9C.

She added:“England and Wales will have a cold night tonight, with a sharp frost to start your December morning.

“On Tuesday we will see some dense fog across southern England that will struggle to clear.”

The cold air mass comes as polar winds head directly south between Greenland and Norway.

Temperatures will drop as low as -14C in some parts of the UK, with conditions similar to that expected in the Arctic.

Snow could even strike on 12 December – the day the country holds a general election.

The UK is also odds-on to see snow on Christmas Day, according to the bookies.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It’s seemingly a case of where, not if, it will snow on Christmas and as per it’s Glasgow and Edinburgh shortest in the betting.”
