Experts warned a “severe” cold snap would take hold from today with hurricane-force winds set to hammer parts of the UK. Gales of up to 100mph will make it feel as cold as minus 10C (14F)and create blizzard-like conditions in areas where heavy snow is forecast.
The Met Office yesterday issued a maximum-level red extreme weather warning for winds today and tomorrow in the North. The red alert, issued only a few times a year, was not even triggered in September when Hurricane Katia caused widespread damage to buildings.
