Its just gone past 10pm and here, in the South West of Scotland temperatures have sunk to -8C! This isnt data from one weather station, but from two! The Weather Stations at Prestwick Airport and Glasgow Airport are both showing minus 8 Celsius which is astonishingly cold for any time of the year here!

Not sure what the records are in relation to the coldest nights in November but surely can be far off it?

Update:

Well its official, for many in the UK that night was the coldest ever recorded! Temperatures in Wales fell as low as -17C.
