Temperatures in Oxford were so low last week that it was officially colder than Moscow

It’s electric blanket season for sure

Last week the UK experienced sub-zero temperatures on a daily basis causing many houses left in the cold during this cost of living crisis.

The UK Health Security Agency put the UK in a level three weather alert which was then lifted by midnight on Sunday 18th December.

On December 15th, temperatures in Oxford reached a nail biting minus nine degrees which is colder than places notoriously known for being really cold. Oxford was colder than Helsinki (Finland’s capital), Moscow (Russia) and Juneau (Alaska’s captial).

Helskini reached a temperature of minus six degrees as well as Moscow and Juneau also reaching minus six. Other places, such as Toronto, reached minus one degrees making Oxford the coldest of all.

The UK Health Security Agency recommends keeping your house at 18 degrees in this weather warning and wrapping up warm when inside.
