The Met Office says the air will be cold enough next week for snow anywhere between the Isles of Scilly and Shetland.

"The Met office is working with partners in road, rail and air transport to help minimize the impacts on the public".

That afternoon and evening snow is expected to become more persistent and more widespread, with the potential for vehicles to become stranded, train and plane cancellations and power cuts.

"Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected".

"The Beast from the East" - a cold blast of air driven from Russian Federation - will bring plummeting temperatures and the possibility of heavy snow from Tuesday.

Widespread snow is forecast and the Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for snow across Northern Ireland on Wednesday and now for Thursday.

Central overnight temperatures could drop to -6C and it will be colder still from Tuesday with more concentrated snow showers and a reasonable accumulation of snow.

Exceptionally cold weather is forecast for next week with significant wind chill and severe frosts.

The Met Office in Aberdeen said the country is in line for a repeat of the atrocious weather of March 2013, when much of Scotland was brought to a standstill.

Parts of the United Kingdom will feel colder than the Arctic Circle as freezing air from Russian Federation puts spring on hold and brings the coldest February week in five years.

It will be very cold on Monday night with a severe frost and the risk of snow showers along northern and eastern coasts.

Mostly cloudy on Monday with light snow showers throughout the day.

"The air coming in from Russian Federation is bitterly cold, and in this instance the term "Beast of the East" is completely valid", he said.

And the Met Office has predicted that up to 11 inches of snow could fall in certain areas in the North East by the end of the week.

Freezing air from Siberia is expected to cover Britain this weekend and remain there all next week, bringing significant and disruptive snowfall.

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