Thu 31 Jan 2019, time 09.55 AM
The UK weathered its coldest night of the winter so far as a cold snap continued to cause icy conditions across the country.
Braemar in Aberdeenshire was the coldest place in the country as temperatures dipped to -11C (12.2F), which was 0.2C lower than the previous record for 2019.
All four countries in the UK set new records for this winter, with Sennybridge in Powys, Wales, dropping to -9.3C (15.3F), Katesbridge in Northern Ireland falling to -8.2C (17.2F) and Redesdale Camp in Northumberland recording a temperature of -10.4C (13.3F).
UK weather: warnings of significant snowfall on Thursday
The Met Office issued weather warnings for snow, ice and fog on Thursday and into Friday. Mark Wilson, a Met Office forecaster, said the cold temperatures would stick around.
“It’s been a very, very cold night,” Wilson said. “On Thursday night we could see similar temperatures in Scotland, but Northern Ireland, England and Wales probably won’t be quite as cold. Saturday night into Sunday could also be very cold.”
Southeastern trains said 21 services were being cancelled or altered on Thursday morning to minimise the impact of ice forming on the rails and ensure lines were clear. It said it would also run its “winter weather timetable” on Friday due to the forecast.
Manchester and Liverpool airports were brought to a standstill on Wednesday morning and several schools across the UK were closed owing to the harsh conditions.
Wilson said central England and Wales could bear the brunt of the snow on Thursday afternoon and into the evening, with up to 10cm (4in) of snow in some places.
Yellow weather warnings for ice were in place for north-west Scotland and the Northern and Western Isles, alerting travellers to be wary of slippery roads. Similar warnings were in place for north-west and south-west England, Yorkshire and the Humber and Wales.
People in the Midlands, east of England, Greater London and the south of England were advised to beware of fog making driving on icy roads more difficult on Thursday morning.
A yellow warning for snow was in place across large swaths of England and was due to remain in place until late on Friday night. Most of Scotland should also be prepared for snowfall, the Met Office said.
