Brrr! We could be in for FIVE DAYS of snow. Here’s what you can expect…

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice for the next four days.

As well as snow, temperatures could feel bitter.

Tomorrow, they won’t get above 2 degrees – and with the wind chill factor, it could feel as cold as -5 even at mid-day, according to the Met Office.

More snow is forecast for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – and possibly even Friday. Temperatures will mostly remain at or just below zero – and could feel a lot colder than that.

The Met Office has warned that there could be travel delays on roads, and that vehicles could get stranded.

There may also be power cuts and mobile phone failures, it says. Some rural communities could be cut off.

It has urged pedestrians and cyclists also to take care on icy footpaths.
