Though pretty sparse for many, there’s still a large enough coverage of this highly reflective surface in which maximum heat loss into space can be achieved overnight tonight based on air mass in place.

So far, the cold has been run of the mill with a few occasions dipping to between -10 and -11C.

Where you’ve a good snow cover, temps should reach -7 to -10C with -14C possible in the snow covered Scottish Glens. Where there’s no snow, we could still see -3 to -6, locally -8C.
