As the dog and I can testify, it's getting a lot colder.
The Met Office have issued a severe weather warning for the North West as follows:
Monday 27th Feb — Tues 28th Feb
Ice is expected to form during Monday evening and overnight leading to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.
Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice. The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate, and locally to lower levels where heavier showers occur.
The warning has been updated to extend the area further north on the eastern side of Scotland, allowing for snow in showers to fall to lower levels locally in heavier showers and to bring the start time forward by two hours.
