The look ahead to the start of the new week from the Met Office warns of wintry showers. These could become ‘widespread’ on March 6 and 7.  The Met Office and UKHSA are warning that all regions of England will experience cold weather from 1am on Monday March 6 to midnight on Wednesday March 8, and have issued a cold weather alert.

Dr Agostinho Sousa, head of extreme events and health protection at UKHSA, said: “During periods like this, it is important to check in on family, friends and relatives who may be more vulnerable to the cold weather, as it can have a serious impact on health. If you have a pre-existing medical condition or are over the age of 65, it is important to try and heat your home to at least 18°C if you can.”
