A Met Office spokesperson said the weather is “cold for the time of year”, with much of the UK predicted to see frosty weather overnight and into Sunday morning.
A Met Office spokesperson said the southwest of England, expecting frosty temperatures over the final weekend of November, is usually 3 or 4 degrees around this time of year.
Freezing fog was seen in parts of central and southern England this morning, after the Met Office issued a fog warning over reduced visibility and possible travel disruption.
The Met Office said there should be no fog warnings for the rest of the day, although freezing fog is expected to move upwards into northern England.
Scotland could see some of the UK’s lowest temperatures tonight. A Met Office spokesperson said hilly areas could drop to as low as -8C.
A danger-to-life ice warning was issued early Friday morning and ended around 10am, after temperatures dropped below what is normally expected this time of year.
Fog is expected to subside towards the end of the weekend, although the Met Office warned more is expected from Monday night through to Wednesday.
