Weather in Kent: Temperatures set to dive in line with freezing fog and snow

Kent will see a foggy, biting cold week ahead when an Arctic explosion freezes the nation and threatens some areas with snow with temperatures set to dive.

Forecasters have warned that winter weather will begin this week, and some regions may see snow fall for at least five days – but Kent will happily avoid the worst of the weather.

The looming cold snap will see temperatures drop to minus 11 from next week in some areas as frost conditions appear to cause travel disruptions.

Tyler Ros of AccuWeather said: “The threat of snow between 17 and 22 November appears to be around normal for the season, which is that any accumulation of snow is likely to occur in the higher altitudes of northern England and Scotland.

“We need to see a cold spell that looks set to move into Eastern Europe early next week.

“If this bleeds west towards Britain (with the core of the cold left in Eastern Europe), then temperatures will be close to slightly below normal during this stretch.”

WXCharts says temperatures could drop to between -7C and -11C from the week of November 23rd.

Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning as heavy fog is likely to sweep across the UK.
