" 'Taters" is an English slang expression, meaning that it is bloody cold.

"Gawd, it's 'taters out there....I think me balls have dropped off"...being one way of using it.

(from 'taters in the mould = cold.....Cockney rhyming slang).

It is also used as a shortening of the word potatoes, by the dreadful working class of London.

And Ellpus is wrong, they don't say taters in London. It's more Northern, they say it in Yorkshire all the time.
