The gritters are out up and down the country in preparation for a ‘polar vortex’ that is due move South form the Arctic tonight.
The ‘polar vortex’ is estimated to result in up to six inches of snow in some parts, with Britain facing temperatures colder than Moscow.
The Met Office have issued a yellow warning and have predicted that Tuesday and Wednesday are set for even more snow and frosty conditions.
The British public are being urged to wrap up warm and prepare for a big freeze as temperatures drop below zero.
A spokesperson from the Met Office has warned “a band of rain spreading slowly in will turn to snow as it encounters cold air”, and continued “whilst this will be mainly on high ground, heavier bursts could easily bring snow down to low levels.
Compared to previous years, temperatures over the next three months are expected to drop below average – meaning we could be facing the coldest winter in five years.
Vulnerable people have been urged to take extra care in cold weather and commuters to expect delays.
