BRITAIN will be battered by an Arctic blast from Iceland next week – bringing snow, ice, flooding and bitter gales.
Forecasters last night warned the mercury will plummet to near freezing in many areas with daytime temperatures 15C lower than this time last year.
The Scottish Highlands and parts of northern England could see their first dusting of snow, while the entire country faces cold conditions and possible frosts. Forecasters said the bitter weather is likely to remain for the next few weeks with significant snow by the middle of the month.
The wintry forecast comes as the country recovers from a week of torrential downpours which have sparked devastating floods.
More than two months’ worth of rain has fallen in parts causing rivers to burst banks and forcing hundreds of families from their homes.

BRITAIN is braced for winter to roar in with a vengeance this weekend.
A blast of cold air from Iceland is expected to send temperatures plummeting as low as -5C.
Gritters were on standby in County Durham yesterday as forecasters warned the entire UK faces a bitter night with widespread frosts. Meanwhile the tail end of tropical storm Nadine, now sweeping across the Atlantic, will arrive tomorrow from the South, bringing winds of up to 85mph and heavy downpours.
The Met Office last night issued severe weather warnings for torrential rain tomorrow and Monday in the South and along the East Coast.
The gales threaten to fell trees and damage buildings while up to five inches of rain could fall in just a few hours, leading to flash flooding and travel chaos.
Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services, said much of the country would be lashed by a “very nasty” spell of weather.

#The Met Office claim to have developed a far better way of predicting cold snaps weeks in advance
#Forecasters have developed a computer program which tracks changes in the atmosphere thought to be key to extreme cold spells
The Met Office was criticised over inaccurate forecasts ahead of the Big Freeze winter two years ago.
However, it now claims it is far better at predicting cold snaps weeks in advance.
Forecasters have come up with a computer program which can track changes high up in the atmosphere, which are thought to be key to extreme cold spells.
