The Met Office has issued a cold weather alert with a 99% probability of severe cold weather, icy conditions and heavy snow between 0900 on Thursday 14 Jan and 1200 on Tuesday 19 Jan in parts of England.
It will be turning much colder for all parts of England over the next few days. There will be spells of sleet and snow that will become increasingly confined to the North Sea coast and hills, giving way to cold, crisp days and sharp overnight frosts. Frosts may also be severe at times, particularly where there is lying snow.
As winds fall light there is an increasing risk of freezing fog patches forming overnight. Locally where freezing fog lingers temperatures may stay sub-zero all day. Cold weather currently looks set to last into early next week.
At this stage, it appears that the weather may then turn less cold during the middle of next week.
