Region to freeze as Storm Darcy brings blizzards to South

Sub zero temperatures are forecast for Devon and Cornwall – with Storm Darcy expected to brings blizzards to southern England.

Heavy snow and gale-force winds across South East England, with cold air from Russia coming in – and ‘Amber’ snow warnings in place for the coastal area.

Here in the South West, temperatures are set fall to as low as -2°C in parts of Devon, after cold weather warning was issued.

The Exeter based Met Office says, on Saturday 6 February the South West will have sunny spells throughout the day along with some scattered showers.

The band of rain will start moving towards the Northeast towards the end of the day.

The maximum temperature we can expect on Saturday is 9°C.

However, as night falls we can expect the temperatures to drop as well with a minimum of -2°C in several areas, including Plymouth and Bodmin in Cornwall.

Met Office said: “Tonight Rain will move southwestwards across many parts, turning to snow across eastern counties before clearly away later. Some icy patches likely later. Cornwall remaining mostly dry.”

On Sunday we can expect much colder weather with the maximum temperature forecast being just 3°C.

The Met Office South West forecast reads: “Much colder on Sunday, with occasional snow flurries possible in the east.
