It's -10.5 out there this morning.

And the snow is both cold enough and deep enough that driving is getting interesting. There would appear to have been only the lightest of gritting, judging by the cleanness of the snow undertyre.

This is so not the weather I've grown up used to in this part of the world. In most of the years since we moved here, there's been either only a light shower of snow, or no snow at all of a winter. This year, we've had the second big shower already, and last year was unusually snowy too.

As for the temperature outside where you are - I'd expect more than a couple of degrees difference, assuming that the utility has as much wall common with the house as it has outside walls.

No heating on in the utility though, so the heat generation in there comes from the freezer / leakage through the door from the lounge and the tumble dryer when it's on (with the window open)

Makes a damn good chiller for Xmas :)

I was assuming an unheated room, with roughly equivalent heat leakage in from the heated portion of the house and out through the exterior wall.

If the window's open all the time, then there's much less insulation in that direction.

For what it's worth, at lunchtime yesterday the external temperature was -8C, while the temperature in our garage (which is not adjacent to any heated room, has no loft insulation, and one face of which is a garage door rather than a wall) was -2C.
