Weather chaos is expected to affect the UK for the rest of February after a weekend of snowfall across the country, forecasters warned.
Many parts of the country woke up to lying snow with some areas still covered with up to five inches (14cm), after temperatures dropped to as low of -8.6 (16.5F) overnight.
Sleet and snow showers were expected in East Anglia today while the rest of the country was due to see sub-zero temperatures, fog and ice.
"There's a risk of the odd wintry shower but the rest of the week, it's staying pretty cold," said Steven Keates, Met Office forecaster.
"This weather front is still west of us and that same weather front if still forecast to be around at least into the start of the weekend.
"It looks as if this cold snap will last for two to three weeks but it does look as if it will erode from the west in the second half of February."
