The Met Office, on Friday, issued a COLD WEATHER ALERT for the coming period - This AMBER level warning, requires social and healthcare services to target specific actions at high-risk groups.  The Full Warning, is shown below ...........

WHITEOUT: 'Significant' snowfall is set to bring some parts of Britain to a grinding halt soon - the debate amongst forecasters is just how far west the snow will fall in quantity
A band of heavy snow will sweep in from the east on Monday night, falling on Hull, Peterborough, Norwich.  Snow will be falling in almost every part of the country on Tuesday, falling, in varying quantities, on almost every town and city including London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester and Edinburgh.  Only south-west England will miss out, but the band of snow will spill over into this area on Wednesday – while the west of Wales appears to miss out altogether.
Forecast models for Tuesday (see snow chart for Tuesday below) onwards currently show wave after wave of snowfall will then follow through until late Saturday when a band of rain finally looms.
And with bone-chilling -10C temperatures predicted – meaning the snow won’t thaw – many places could eventually see accumulations of 10cm.
The Met Office Cold Weather Alert below is still valid.

Sunday:
Sunday, very cold, and apart from perhaps a few scattered snow showers, mainly dry with lots of bright and sunny periods, along with brisk easterly winds, giving a significant chill factor. Maximum Air Temperature 2 C. (Feeling like -2 C!)
Sunday Evening and Night:
A very cold evening and night, with brisk easterly winds, giving a significant chill factor. Clear period s at first, then cloud building later. Minimum Air Temperature - 4 C. Ground level, low temperature, could be down below - 8 C.
Monday:
Monday, very cold, breezy, mainly dry - more in the way of cloud cover than recent days. but with some limited bright periods, but the chance of snow arriving becomes greater, and there is just the possibility of a few scattered snow showers. Although the winds will start lively, they will ease later in the day, but still give a significant chill factor. Maximum Air Temperature -1 C. (Feeling like -4 C!)
Monday Evening and Night:
A very cold evening and night, with lighter winds - there will still be wind chill, even at lower wind speeds. Mainly dry - just a possibility of scattered snow showers. Minimum Air Temperature - 5 C. Ground level, low temperature, could be down below - 9 C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Tuesday, very cold, breezy, with snow showers arriving - some bright periods. The snow showers reaching this far east, should not produce a great deal on the ground (famous last words!) - then very cold overnight to Wednesday. Wednesday, very cold and windy, with scattered snow showers - then very cold overnight to Thursday. Thursday very windy - peak wind speeds could reach 50mph - and very cold - scattered snow showers.-

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
-UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Mar 2018 to Saturday 10 Mar 2018:
March will begin very cold with sunshine and snow showers, these continuing to bring some accumulations especially across eastern parts. Friday could see heavier and disruptive snow developing across southern and some central areas, combined with strong to gale force easterly winds, leading to blizzard conditions. However, there is a lot of uncertainty with this. Thereafter, it is likely to remain very cold through early March with further snow showers in the east and southeast. The best of the sunshine is likely in the west, but all areas will feel bitterly cold in strong winds with a significant wind chill. Overnight frost will be widespread and severe in places. At times, it may turn more unsettled and less cold across the west and southwest.
UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Mar 2018 to Sunday 25 Mar 2018:
The start of this period is likely to remain very cold across much of the UK, with bitterly cold easterly winds giving a significant wind chill. There will continue to be a risk of snow across southern, eastern and some central areas, but in the north and west it should be drier. Frosts will continue to be widespread and severe in places. As we head towards the middle of March it may turn more unsettled and less cold with milder and wetter weather spreading up from the south or southwest. This may lead to further significant snow in places although this remains very uncertain. Northern areas may hang on to the colder weather well into March.-
