Is it going to snow in the UK this month? The Met Office has warned of a repeat of last year's 'Beast From The East'
We're now finally coming to terms with the fact that it's about to get very cold but is it going to snow in the UK? And we don't just mean swanning-about-in-a-light-jacket December cold, we mean triple polar vortex - eight inches of snow across the UK cold.
And it's about to get a whole lot worse.
Britain is apparently set to be covered in snow for an entire MONTH as a deep freeze sets in around the country. Yikes.
Today (Tuesday 15 January) is set to be the last day of mild temperatures, and freezing cold conditions are reportedly going to hit the country for the rest of the week.
Snow is also forecast for parts of the country, with some commentators saying it could settle in places for an entire month.
To make matters more terrifying, temperatures could drop to -17C in parts of the country. The worst conditions are apparently going to start this week and continue on until the beginning of February.
The Met Office has warned people to prepare for snow, ice and widespread frost - and it went on to say that we cannot rule out a repeat of the dreaded Beast From The East of 2018.
And it seems nobody is safe. The Met Office warned that snow could 'fall anywhere' after this weekend, and some forecasters have claimed it could be the coldest part of the year.
Heavy rain will sweep eastwards across much of England and Wales on Wednesday, and will be followed by colder weather with a chance of snow over northern hills, the Met Office warned.
Thursday will be frosty across the country, and drivers are being warned of a potential ice risk on Friday.
The potential for snow will get stronger the following Sunday as temperatures plummet even more.
