But despite the low temperatures, the Met Office is not forecasting any snow or sleet for the Portsmouth area over the next few weeks.

Speaking about the UK forecast over the next two weeks, a Met Office spokesperson said: '˜It will be staying on the chilly side, with patchy frost or ice likely at night.

'˜Into early December, there is a lot of uncertainty in the forecast, as there is the chance of either a short-lived milder spell with winds from the west, or perhaps seeing even colder conditions if the winds turn more northerly or northeasterly.'

Forecasters are expecting maximum temperatures of 8C today.
