In usually temperate Farnborough temperatures dropped as low as  -8.9 degrees Celsius.

Amazingly! It shared the honour Altnaharra. Which is a very small hamlet in the Highland in Northern Scotland.

A spokesperson from the Met Office told Eagle Radio:  “showed the depth of the arctic blast we’re experiencing, and will be experiencing for some time.”

This comes fresh after forecaster’s predicted extremely cold temperatures this very week. Some report it to get even worse.

Scarily tonight the temperature could drop as low as -9 degrees Celsius in Surrey and Hampshire.
