'Icy' Britain goes into 'deep-freeze'

By Abdul Nisar

London, Nov 29 (ANI): Britain is experiencing the coldest season in many years, with reports claiming that Wales has recorded a minimum temperature of minus 17C and minus 17.3C at Llysdinam near Llandrindod Wells on Saturday, which is the principality's lowest ever temperature for November and the UK's chilliest for the month since 1985.

The UK's lowest ever recorded temperature in November was minus 23.3C recorded in Braemar, in the Scottish Highlands, on November 14, 1919.

According to the Telegraph, the temperature of Shawbury in Shropshire also dropped to minus 2.5C, Lough Fea in Northern Ireland to minus 9.2C and Church Fenton in North Yorks bottomed out at minus 11.9C

The paper quoted Michael Dukes of MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, as saying that the Arctic conditions were caused by a combination of light winds, snow cover and clear skies, and could see readings down to minus 20C in Scotland later this week.

"You are seeing some ridiculously low temperatures - it has been a bit like it is in the middle of Scandinavia," he added. (ANI)
