Hull residents have been warned to expect the first cold snap of the season.

Near sub-zero temperatures are predicted for the Humber and Yorkshire region, prompting a cold weather warning from Met Office officials.

The Level 2 alert, which also applies to North-West and North-East England, is activated when chances of severe conditions reach 60% or more.

This has been applied to between Friday night (November 20) to Monday morning (November 23) with temperatures likely to fall to at least 2°C.

Public Health England’s (PHE) Angie Bone has delivered a warning to people living in and around Hull.

Dr. Bone says residents should keep an eye open for vulnerable neighbours, exercise caution when outside, and to stay warm in their homes.

Friday evening will probably see winds of either strong or gale-force ferocity.

Significant gales are expected on Saturday around eastern coasts bringing a noticeable wind chill factor, according to the Met Office.

Chief operational meteorologist, Frank Saunders says frosts are possible overnight along with wintry showers, icy weather and even snow on higher parts. Monday should see a return to milder weather.

Dr. Bone advises people to keep their home warmed to 18°C or above.
