(WEDNESDAY 28th FEB)
With thanks to the intense blizzards and increased windchill for those in the North-east of England and parts of Scotland, there will be severe disruption and a Red warning for central Scotland has been issued.
The drop in temperatures means the existing snow will turn to slush, causing travel disruptions on the dangerously slippy roads.
With high pressure cold winds hitting the East of the country combined the low pressure from the Western side of Europe will provide for more snow, blizzards and icy surfaces.
The Red Warning remains in Scotland as it prepares for persistent snow and blizzards with temperatures reaching -11 in Aberdeen and -8 in Edinburgh.
Thursday morning, you can expect wide spread temperatures of below freezing. Making the fluffy snow, slushy and icy once more.
With a thicker concentration of cloud cover, more snow is to cover the Midlands and Southern parts of the country.

The cold weather continues this week, seeing temperatures of below freezing in the day across parts of the UK. With the wet weather blowing in from the East, the temperatures at night are set to fall even lower.
With the bitter wind chill and dry air (drier than usual) the snow will be fluffy rather than slushy meaning there will be little, if any, frost and ice.
Blizzard like conditions across the country – In the early hours of Tuesday morning (5AM) parts of the country such as Birmingham can expect temperatures of around -5 and down to -7 in Norwich.
