Further to the cold weather alert issued on 11 January, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) is again encouraging people to stay warm and look out for those most at risk.
The Met Office is warning that the North West of England, Yorkshire and Humber, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, London, South East England and South West England regions will all experience cold weather from 6pm on Thursday 13 January to 9am on Monday 17 January.
Frank Saunders, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, said:
Previous updates were published by Public Health England.
"Temperatures in England are expected to continue below normal in the coming days, with overnight minimum temperatures possibly getting to -4°C in some rural areas again tonight, and perhaps approaching this value again on Sunday night. Freezing fog will also form again across some areas on Friday night and Saturday morning.
"Areas covered by the alert are likely to see highs remain in the mid-to-low single figures through the weekend, especially in places where any fog or low cloud lingers throughout the day."
