  • Cold Weather Warning :  An urgent cold weather alert has been issued for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It urges people to take action ahead of a spell of cold weather since yesterday. It comes after forecasters have been hinting that cold weather from Russia (the so-called Beast from the East) may arrive before Christmas. The last time the county experienced extreme wintry weather was in February and March 2018. The alert urges people to make sure vulnerable people are looked after. It also warns that disruption to delivery services can be expected.
