IT is set to be a cold and windy night across north Worcestershire and the Black Country tonight, with temperatures dropping to -5°C.

Severe frost will be widespread and the occasional isolated shower is likely, which could turn into light snow over the hills.

Looking ahead to Thursday, it will be another chilly day, with temperatures staying below 5°C, but winds will ease.

It should remain dry, with some sunny spells, although there could be more isolated showers.
