Christmas now looks likely for Burnham-On-Sea area
looks set to have its first white Christmas for years after forecasters
predicted this week's freezing weather is due to continue into
The Met Office has issued several new weather warnings for
sub-zero temperatures and icy surfaces throughout the week, making
a full thaw before Christmas Day very unlikely.
Temperatures will barely climb into single digits
during the daytime and fall as low as -9 degrees Centigrade each
night this week, with the weather not predicted to get milder
until after the weekend.
The latest weather warning states: "There will
be a continuing risk of widespread ice affecting untreated surfaces
as the cold weather continues. Further snow showers are also likely,
giving additional accumulations."
