     BITTER Day time temperatures could plummet below freezing next week

Three severe weather warnings for snow have now been issued from Monday through to Wednesday.

It will remain in place until 9am on Monday morning as the first of the snow could hit tomorrow.

The warning covers most of the United Kingdom on Wednesday, with heavy snow showers forecast across the country.

Travel delays on roads are likely, stranding some vehicles and passengers.

'Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected'.

Disruptive snow showers expected from Tuesday onwards in the east and southeast.

We have an extremely cold east polar continental wind that is going to bring even lower temperatures than we've got at the moment and some significant snow.

The Met Office reported that from Tuesday it will be 'seriously cold with strong easterly winds giving significant wind chill'.

There will be widespread snow showers at times, most especially in eastern, southern and northern counties and some disruptive accumulations are likely in these areas.

Next month could be the coldest on record as the so-called beast from the east brings about the chilliest spell of weather for several years.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "We have had a fair amount of Atlantic storms, nine storms - including the former hurricane Ophelia".

The warning has been extended by another day, meaning snow is also possible on Thursday, although the situation remains uncertain.

It comes as a flow of air from Russian Federation, nicknamed the "beast from the east", will see the mercury dip to below freezing across most of the country next week.

Temperatures in the United Kingdom could plummet so low that they rival those predicted for northern Norway and Iceland.

"There are signs that the cold spell in the United Kingdom is likely to last well into next week and perhaps into the following week".

After a freezing -5.5C was recorded in Sussex last night, the mercury will drop further over the weekend as Britain braces itself for the coldest week in five years.

The coming weeks are "largely uncertain", he added, but Brits needed to stay vigilant to keep warm.
