John Griffiths, a senior operational meteorologist at the Met Office, said the conditions could affect those living at the city’s ‘highest ground’.

Showers may also continue to fall in Portsmouth at around midday, with temperatures forecast to peak at about seven degrees.

Mr Griffiths warned gales could make it feel colder than this because of winds which could reach 30mph.
