The UK is getting colder than any place in the southern hemisphere after Storm Henri swept through the country over the weekend.

In the least optimistic part of the scale that describes places at risk of “a significant increase in the number and intensity of potential hazards”, Wilma (cautionary signs remain in place) now stands at -1 in parts of the South West and West Midlands – and -3 in central parts of England.

Properties could still be evacuated, and there will be other potential hazards, such as possible flooding in places like Ipswich, Sudbury and Ripon, from low pressure.

The AA has issued its Hurricane Warning:

Of particular concern will be the impact on the roads on Monday morning as the forecast mixed precipitation and daytime temperatures are expected to be around or below freezing.
