    Dip cold?

    Hi Forum,

    is this a set phrase? Is it widely used to talk about the weather?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    I have heard of a 'cold dip', but never 'dip cold'.

    ... or a 'cold snap' or a'cold spell' - the adjective comes first.
