This coming weekend will see the return of colder weather across the UK with the increasing chance of snow in some areas.

At this stage, eastern parts of the country are expected to see the heaviest of any snow with some disruption possible.

Although temperatures will be just above freezing, it will feel colder in the brisk easterly wind.

So far, the UK winter has been the coldest for over a decade. The last time winter temperatures were lower was in 1996/97.

Met Office forecasters expect the cold theme to the weather to continue well into next week with the chance of further snow.
