The Met Office has told Birmingham to prepare for the coldest night of the year, with temperatures hitting 0 degrees celcius in the late hours of Monday the 7th of November.

It is expected that on Tuesday the frost will clear away for a bright morning but come mid afternoon Birmingham should expect possible rain and snow arriving later in the day, with the absolute maximum temperature of the day being a lowly 7 degrees.

Professor Adam Scaife, head of long-range prediction at the Met Office Hadley Centre, said: “Historical weather observations and our latest computer model simulations agree that these factors are increasing the risk of a cold start to winter for the UK.”

The chances of a continued streak of cold weather affecting Birmingham are at their highest since the winter of 2010/11, which saw the coldest winter in Birmingham in 100 years.
