The next few days look very cold with widespread frost and ice by night and a biting easterly wind.

Widespread icy stretches are anticipated this morning across the whole of the Central region with a dusting of lying snow through parts of the East Midlands, maybe up to 10cm in places. It is a very frosty start to the day after overnight lows of minus 4 or maybe even minus 6c.

A much simpler day today, very cold, very icy but dry and bright through the West Midlands. In the East, Lincolnshire risks further sleet or snow showers though they are less likely to settle during daylight hours.
