Cold weather to cause mobile phone signals to cut out?

Frosty weather across the UK could cause mobile phone signals to cut out.

The country is currently in the midst of a particularly cold spell and mobile phone users have been warned that their services could be affected by the temperatures.

In a statement issued on Monday (12.02.18), the Met Office explained: "The showers will be heaviest and most frequent across parts of western and northern Scotland. Longer journey times by road, bus and train services are likely while some vehicles could become stranded.

"Ice is likely to form on untreated pavements, cycle paths and roads leading to some injuries from slips and falls. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected."

Temperatures in Scotland could fall to as low as -6 over the coming days, according to weather forecasts.

Snow and frost are also likely in other areas of the UK.

Met Office meteorologist Ollie Claydon told the Evening Standard newspaper: "Temperatures will stay around freezing in London overnight and then anyone in the countryside will wake up to a frost."

He added: "This is ahead of a squally feature that will move across the country from west to east."
