According to reports, the whole country could be hit by heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures.

Simon Lee, an atmospheric science and weather forecasting researcher at the University of Reading, said the mirror: “Jet stream weakening often occurs after an SSW which means the UK is now more prone to outbreaks of colder weather from the north and east than before.”

RAC’s Ben Aldous had a strong warning for those who wanted to race in the conditions.

He said: “Fog, ice and in some places snow are the drivers’ enemies. In order to avoid the conditions being adversely affected, it is important for motorists to adapt their driving style.

“If you accelerate and brake more gently and drive more slowly, especially on rural or unpaved roads, you can ensure a safe and problem-free journey.”

It comes after a cold weather that has raged across the UK since the start of the New Year.
