Parts of Britain prepare for coldest November spell for 25 years

A level 2 cold weather warning was issued by meteorologists at the Met Office Monday saying all parts of England should be braced for several days of prolonged temperatures.

One report said some parts of Britain could experience the coldest November spell for 25 years, with temperatures dropping to minus 8 degrees C.

The alert was issued as gaming companies, the so-called bookmakers in Britain, cut the odds Monday on bets for a White Christmas this year.

All parts of England, except for London, are likely to experience colder conditions in the coming days, according to the Met Office which Monday declared its cold weather alert.

The cold weather forecasts across most of England, with all affected regions likely to experience prolonged low night and daytime temperatures, prompted warnings to take care from Public Health England (PHE).

The warning came as Andy Page, chief operational meteorologist at the Met Office, said there are indications that a cold start to winter is more likely than normal.
