Across the UK, high winds brought down trees and damaged homes.
A yellow weather warning, which is expected to be lifted by 11am this morning, remains in place for most parts of northern England and Scotland.
The capital and the south-east are not likely to face the same windy conditions as it did yesterday, with a brighter day ahead expected.
In statement, the Met Office said: “Early frost will lift, then it will be a cold day with sunny spells, and most places will remain dry, apart from an isolated shower in Hampshire.
“Light or moderate westerly winds inland, sometimes brisk near coasts and exposed hills. Maximum temperature 6 °C.”
