Public Health England has issued a cold weather warning for the UK until 12pm on Wednesday as temperatures in parts of the UK plummeted to -10C last night, making it the coldest night of the year so far.
Braemar in Aberdeenshrie recorded -9.9C, while Sunday night saw -8.6C (17.4F) in Tulloch Bridge and Dalwhinnie.
In Northern Ireland, they dipped to -5.1C (22.8F) in Katesbridge, County Down.
PHE is urging people to look out for anyone who may need help to stay warm. Dr Emer O’Connell said: “Older people and those with heart and lung problems are at risk of getting sick in cold weather.”
“The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for fog until 11am on Tuesday, saying there is a chance of flight delays or cancellations and bus and train services could also be disrupted.”
Temperatures are expected to rise through the week, with cloud cover bringing an increasing chance of rain.
November 1919 was – and remains – the UK’s coldest November on record, when Braemar experienced -23.3C, with similar temperatures measured across the Highlands.
