Met Office issues weather warning as temperatures fall sharply

Published: 7 December 2022

Temperatures are likely to fall below zero overnight

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for ice as a cold snap is set to bring below freezing temperatures to the city.

The yellow warning is in place from 5pm on Wednesday until 6pm on Thursday.

The warning means an increased chance of injury from slips and falls on icy surfaces, with icy patches forming on pavements, cycle paths and untreated roads.

On Wednesday evening it will turn very cold with a widespread frost forming under clear skies and light winds.  The minimum temperature could reach -4C.

It is likely to be a frosty start to Thursday, with a few wintry showers possible in parts of Devon.

It will remain cold and dry throughout the weekend, with overnight temperatures falling below 0C.

The City Council has activated its Severe Weather Emergency Protocol in light of forecasted sub-zero temperatures.

It means anyone sleeping rough in the city will be offered extra opportunity to come indoors during the cold weather.

People can report someone they believe to be rough sleeping to Streetlink to ensure that they get the support they need.
