Wrap up warm! Britain is colder than ANTARCTICA

Britain is facing sub-zero conditions overnight yet again tonight as temperatures stubbornly remain lower than average for November.  

Weather warnings have been issued across parts of England, Scotland and Wales today after a combination of freezing temperatures and showers mean there is a high risk of ice.

Temperatures overnight dipped to -5.2 degrees Celsius in Topcliffe, North Yorkshire last night, while temperatures in Benson, Oxfordshire and Drumnadrochit, Scotland plummeted to -4.9 degrees Celsius.

Parts of the country were colder than the US research base Palmer Station in Antarctica, which saw lows of just -2C overnight. 

After a relatively mild week, traditional November conditions arrived in earnest last night as temperatures fell overnight and snow was dumped on some parts.

Severe yellow weather warnings for ice has been issues in Wales, Northern Ireland, western parts of Scotland, north-west England and in Surrey by the Met Office. 

A forecaster said: 'A band of rain, sleet and snow showers will move from the North West to South East across the yellow area through Friday, clearing during the early hours of Saturday, followed by further wintry showers.
