The bitter winds will not be as cold as the recent Siberian blast - but there will be a windchill.

West Sussex could possibly, maybe, we'll believe it when we see it, see some more snow.

A front moving from the south-west towards the north-east is set to bring heavy rain on Wednesday and Thursday along with strong winds.

This means snow could be falling in areas such as Norfolk, Suffolk and Yorkshire in the early hours of the morning on Saturday (March 17).

It comes with the return of very cold temperatures. While temperatures are fairly mild in London at the moment, weather forecasts predict temperatures dropping to around 27 degrees Fahrenheit.

A cold front is heading to the United Kingdom from Poland which is expected to bring ice, snow and strong winds.

The Met Office has issued a further yellow weather warning for snow in Derbyshire this weekend.

The warning will come into affect at 3am on Friday and is in place until 9am on Saturday.

This band of weather will gradually ease during Saturday morning as it moves south-westwards, allowing ice to form as it clears.

Up to 5cm of snow is expected in the south-east - and temperatures are expected to drop by 10C. This time, let's home the snow and ice is gone for good.

"Snow showers are likely to continue throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive".

He added: "Friday night will be much colder with snow showers becoming heavier and more widespread with 1-3cms in places - more especially over the hills".

The RAC has warned motorists to prepare themselves for the unsafe driving conditions.
