November brought heavy snowfall to Scotland, eastern England, and Norfolk, creating hazardous road conditions exacerbated by freezing fog in the Midlands, north-west England, and Northern Ireland. Further snowfall is expected in Scotland’s north and east, along with eastern England, and overnight snow may affect the moors of southwest England.

The cold spell emanates from Scandinavia, where extremely low temperatures prevail. The Met Office has issued snow warnings for multiple regions from Wednesday to Friday morning, signaling potentially dangerous travel conditions.

Authorities are cautioning motorists due to road closures, and London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, has activated a “severe weather emergency protocol.” Under this protocol, additional shelters must be provided for homeless individuals during the exceptionally low temperatures.

As the cold weather sets in, the UK Health Security Agency has issued an amber cold-health alert for northern regions and a yellow alert for the Midlands. These measures aim to ensure public safety and preparedness for the challenges posed by the unusually cold November.
