After a brief respite of milder and wet conditions, winter is set to return with a vengeance to parts of Britain as up to a foot of snow falls over 40 hours and temperatures drop to as low as -12C (10F).
Blizzard conditions are expected to strike from the early hours of tomorrow morning until Thursday night across Scotland and northern England - while freezing rain, which turns to ice on hitting the ground, is also possible.
It comes as much milder conditions have moved into southern England and Wales, with highs of 11C (52F) expected in Cornwall today - although much of the South will be hit by heavy rain over the next two days.
However colder air is hanging on in the North, with highs of just 3C (37F) expected amid sunny conditions this afternoon. It follows a warning of ice this morning for Scotland and England as far south as the Peak District.
The Met Office has warned widespread snowfall of up to 6in (15cm) is likely in areas at least 500ft (150m) above sea level in Scotland and northern England from tomorrow, and up to 2in (5cm) at lower levels.
