A FRESH blast of bitter winter weather is set to hit Britain, bringing further chaos amid snowy and icy conditions.

Britons should brace themselves for yet another cold spell say forecasters, as wintry showers and north-easterly winds from the Arctic cause further weather misery.

The Met Office has already released weather warnings for London and the South East, with up to 15 cm of snow and possible drifting expected on high ground tomorrow and Thursday.

Kent is likely to see the heaviest snow falls with a risk of widespread ice at night.

And temperatures across the country are set to plummet as low as -5C.

Met Office spokesman Barry Grommett told Express.co.uk: "There is high pressure to the North West of the UK which has introduced this bitter north-easterly wind across the country, bringing frequent snow showers in the South East corner.

As each flake falls, global warming's hold on the public diminishes

As Washington digs itself out from under the Snowpocalypse, the region braces for yet more flurries. At least 18 inches of snow lie on the ground at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, and some places were blanketed under as much as three feet. More arctic blasts this week could drive 2010 into the history books as the capital's snowiest winter ever.

The news must send chills up the spines of global warming adherents, for whom this winter has been marked by discontent. Several of the movement's high priests have been exposed as charlatans. The famed "hockey stick" chart - cited as indisputable evidence that the planet has been warming for a century owing to carbon emissions - was exposed for fraudulently doctoring data to "hide the decline" in global temperatures. When the the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that glaciers were melting as a result of the selfishness of mankind, the claim turned out to be a complete fabrication.

The left now must dig itself out from under more than just snow. Public acceptance of a massive cap-and-trade scheme to control carbon emissions diminishes as neighborhood snowdrifts climb ever skyward.

Washington D.C. has been hit with almost thirty inches of snow; the city has not been able to recover after two days. As a result, the government has been shut down, as well as most of the city. Government officials have said that it doesnt make sense for the city to invest in so much snow removal because this is so unusual.

A fresh blast of wintry weather will send temperatures across Britain plummeting, according to forecasters.

Eastern parts of the country are most at risk of snow showers over the next few days but most areas will witness sub-zero temperatures overnight.

It will also feel increasingly cold in the daytime, falling to 1C (34F) in places as a chill northeast wind strengthens through the week.

However, there is not expected to be a repeat of the heavy snow falls and extended period of cold weather which brought the country to a near-standstill last month.

WEATHER UPDATE: SNOW BLASTS BACK INTO BRITAIN...AND BIG FREEZE WILL HIT MID-WEEK, by Nicola McCafferty, Daily Express

The latest cold spell - which follows on from the worst winter seen in the UK in 30 years - today saw temperatures plummet back to minus figures, as the dreaded snow made its reappearance.

But forecasters are warning today's Arctic blast will worsen by mid-week, where up to six inches of snow could blight Kent, Surrey and parts of the south-east.

Today a mixture of snow, sleet and rain brought misery to the Monday morning return to work, with the mercury registering freezing outside of the capital and in areas of the south-east.

The icy conditions are set to worsen overnight as the bulk of the nation feels the chill, with many of us expected to see a light dusting come Tuesday morning. By Wednesday and into Thursday climes will drop even lower, with a fresh band of heavy snow making its way over from the North Sea.

Met Office spokeswoman Helen Chivers said while Britain shouldn't expect a return to the Arctic conditions seen at the start of the year, winter isn't over just yet. "[Today there's] a very wet mixture of precipitation. not just of snow, but rain and sleet as well," she told Express.co.uk.

"There will be a light covering here and there, with the flurries and outbreaks carrying on through the rest of today.

"The snow will gradually die out as we go into tonight, [but another] band will move south across the country and through the latter part of the evening and early morning.

"There will be a dusting in places, with [more snow] visible over the higher routes. "The lowest temperature at the moment is in High Wycombe, which is at freezing. East Anglia, the Peak District and the south-east are registering at zero and one degrees.

More snow on the way for frozen Britain, by Sarah Garrod. InTheNews.co.uk

The UK is set to experience extreme winter weather once again this week, meteorologists have forecast, with snowfall hitting London and the south-east today.

As snow in the US causes chaos along parts of the east coast, including the capital Washington, Britain is being told to brace itself for more snow over the next few days.

Temperatures are expected to plunge below zero, but the weather is not forecast to be as severe as the 'Big Freeze' experienced in early January.

Gemma Plumb, from MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "It will feel a lot colder than it is at the moment this week.

"There is a cold wind coming from the north, which will make conditions seem much chillier. At the moment it looks like the greatest risk of snow is in the east."

The Met Office said this Thursday and Friday snow showers may be frequent, heavy and prolonged at times in the capital and south-east England, adding that 15cm of snow was possible locally over higher ground.

The BBC's forecast for today is: "Brighter with scattered showers, some wintry, across northern and central areas.

"Mainly dry in the west. Cloudy with some light rain or sleet in southern parts, with snow likely over hills, and a cold northeasterly wind."

In parts of the US, transport systems were ground to a standstill over the weekend as icy conditions made travel treacherous following 'historic snow storms'. Many homes were without power and a number of accidents were blamed on the severe weather.

The National Weather Service in the US said today that the "historic snowstorm" has now ended, as the snow moved offshore.
