We can expect yet another very cold night tonight “with widespread sharp to severe frost, icy stretches and patches of fog. Lowest temperatures of -6 to -2 degrees with light southwest or variable breezes.”
The good news is it’s looking considerably milder for the weekend, but it’s likely to be wet and windy.
