LAST night’s thick frost shouldn’t be repeated this week — but Rotherham mornings will still be as chilly as those in the Antarctic.
The temperature at the South Pole outpost of Rothera hit a high of 3 deg C today — just one degree colder than its near-namesake in South Yorkshire, while the early-morning chill hit harder in the UK.
Tomorrow should bring a cloudy but dry day in Rotherham, with temperatures dropping to around 2 deg C tomorrow morning — seven degrees warmer than we had reported in parts of the borough today.
Wednesday will see the mercury rising a little more, to around 7 deg C, but you may need the de-icer again as frost is set to form in the early hours, with temperatures of about -1 deg C slightly higher than in Rothera.
The Met Office said this morning’s deep frost was due to a cold southeasterly airstream across the UK.
