The first flakes of snow fell on London on Tuesday morning as the blizzards that have gripped most of the country showed signs of spreading to the South East.

Londoners woke up to a thin dusting of snow amid reports that the “big freeze” could reach every part of Britain.

Forecasters predicted that up to three inches (8cm) could fall on higher ground in London and the South East during the day as the heavy snow spreads south.

Blizzards that have blighted Scotland and the North East in recent days brought up to two inches to the Midlands overnight and could reach the capital, as well as parts of Wales and the South East.

Drivers across the UK are being warned to take extra care as the working week begins amid further heavy snow and ice.

Parts of eastern England and Scotland already under thick snow could get up to 25cm (10in) more by Monday morning.

Plummeting temperatures overnight will lead to icy roads in many places, while strengthening winds will cause snow to drift and make it feel even colder.

Motoring organisation the AA is warning commuters to take great care, even on major roads that have been gritted.

The UK has been experiencing the earliest widespread snowfall since 1993.

The predication came as more severe weather warnings were issued and parts of Scotland and North East England were hit by up to 16 ins of snow.

The snow will spread across the Pennines towards Manchester today and also move inland from eastern England towards the South East and London, the Met Office said.

A spokesman for the MeteoGroup forecasters said: "People should be bracing themselves for more cold weather for the working week and beyond."

Ten inches of snow is predicted to fall on higher ground in the North today.

Many areas will struggle to get above freezing over the rest of the weekend.Met Office forecaster Dave Britton said: “No part of the country is immune over the next few days.”

Severe weather warnings are in place for London and the Midlands next week. North-easterly gale-force winds threaten blizzards from Tuesday. Experts say the cold snap could last 15 days as ­biting North Sea winds plunge temperatures to -6C (21F).

There were warnings of “very dangerous” driving conditions as snow froze or melted and re-froze.

Some councils complained that grit firms had not delivered supplies in time for the winter blast.

Authorities revealed they were still waiting for grit ordered as long ago as last winter – when there were promises that there would be enough to go round if Britain froze up this year.

Parts of Scotland, the north of England and areas down the east coast were worst hit, with up to four inches of snow falling.

Major roads ground to a halt as motorists struggled with the icy conditions. By 9am the AA had received 3,000 calls from stranded drivers.

Forecasters say today's snow is the tip of the iceberg and have warned that a 10-day freeze is on the way.

Even London could see a couple of inches of snow at the weekend, they predict, with daytime temperatures rising just a few degrees above freezing.

For those who have always wanted to learn to ski, this is your year.

The winter of 2010-11 promises to be colder and snowier than average in B.C., as the frosty weather pattern known as La Niña moves in for a long stay, meteorologist Chris Scott told The Province on Wednesday.

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning Wednesday night for Metro Vancouver, calling for five to 15 centimetres of the white stuff to fall by this afternoon.

“We’re expecting a much more active winter across most of southern, coastal and Interior B.C. than what we saw last winter,” said Scott, forecast operations manager at the Weather Network.

The key to the chilly forecast worldwide is the water temperature in the Pacific near the equator.
