Britain will shiver again this week in a blast of wintry weather forecast to bring snow to some parts of the country.

Eastern England will be most at risk of snow showers as overnight temperatures plunge below zero over the next few days.

It will feel cold in the day too, with temperatures falling to 1C (3F) in some places as a northeast wind strengthens during the week.

But forecasters say there will not be a return to the arctic conditions that caused chaos last month, and the snow will be patchy when it falls.

Sky weather presenter Denise Nurse said: "It'll be a cold and rather cloudy day today for most, although western Scotland and the northern half of Ireland will have some good sunshine.

"Most places will be dry, but there'll be showery rain in the East, and especially the South East of the country. Some sleet and snow are likely at times there too, especially over the hills, but the snow is unlikely to settle."

THE big chill which crippled Scotland's roads is due to return this week with temperatures ready to plunge to -12C.

After a mild spell, icy conditions will return for at least a week, the Met Office predicted yesterday. And eastern Scotland will be the hardest hit with frequent snow showers.

A Met Office spokesman said: "It's a return to the colder weather and we are going to see some quite sharp frosts overnight.

"There will be some snow showers coming in to the east and far north , particularly from Tuesday and Wednesday onwards. "The cold weather will be re-establishing, starting from Monday onwards.

"There will be widespread frost and snow showers in Tayside, Fife and Lothian and Borders. "However, Glasgow and Strathclyde, the West Highlands to Dumfries and Galloway will stay predominantly dry, although it will be cold at nights".

The forecaster added: "By the end of the week, a temperature of -12C is not impossible in the the valleys or glens in the Highlands. The AA yesterday called on the Government to make sure Scotland was not brought to a standstill - like in January's big freeze.

It doesn't seem that long since the big freeze finally melted.

But forecasters say another spell of icy weather is on the way this week, bringing heavy snowfall across the country. Less than two weeks after the coldest January for two decades, spring will feel a long way away, with chaos expected to return to the roads over the next few days.

Weathermen have said 'significant' snowfall will cover some parts of Britain as temperatures drop to as low as -6C. The coldest weather will occur between Wednesday and Friday with up to five inches of snow in the Eastern part of Scotland and England.

Strong north-easterly winds will make it feel even colder.

Met Office forecaster Andrew Sibley said we should be prepared to wrap up warm to deal with the chilly temperatures from Wednesday onwards. He said: 'It will feel very cold later in the week because of that brisk north-easterly wind.

'The cold winter is still continuing.

Britain prepares for another cold spell by Louise Gray, Environment Correspondent, The Telegraph

Snow will return to parts of Britain next week as the country prepares for another cold spell.

The Met Office said temperatures will plunge below freezing at night from the beginning of next week.

During the day it will be around 37F (3C) but there will be snow showers or sleet in the east of the country as cold winds blow in from Eastern Europe.

Local authorities will be out gritting the roads in areas where rain turns to ice over night and traffic may be disrupted in areas where the snow settles.

However Helen Chivers, a meteorologist at the Met Office, said it will be cold until at least next weekend, but it is unlikely to bring as much disruption as the big freeze earlier in the year.

"It is not the same sort of cold we saw in December and January," she said. "The snow showers look most likely in eastern areas and from time to time it will happen temporarily during the day or settle at night. It certainly does not look like widespread snow."

This December and January has been the coldest since 1982, with an average temperature of 35F (1.5C). The coldest winter in modern times is 1963 when the average temperature was 32F (-0.18).

US east coast shut down as 'snowpocalypse' hits by Philip Sherwell, The Telegraph

Washington DC ground to a halt on Saturday as the US capital was blanketed in its heaviest snowfall in nearly a century by a storm dubbed “snowmageddon” and “snowpocalypse”.

The “white-out” blizzard dumped up to 32 inches of snow in some parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia were all pounded, receiving up to 2.5 feet (30 inches). After setting several records, the storm swept out to sea across New Jersey and Virginia, battering the mid-Atlantic shore with winds gusting to 40 miles an hour but largely skirting New York.

The snow brought down electricity lines, leaving at least 200,000 people without power. Several roofs collapsed and trees were felled, blocking roads. The weather has already been blamed for hundreds of accidents and the deaths of a father and son who were trying to help a crashed motorist in Virginia.

Twitter Trend: D.C. snowfall triggers memories of 1922 collapse of theater's roof, Washington Post

It was in late January 1922, during an era in which rescue workers would give accident victims a shot of brandy, when the snow fell at a record pace and the roof of Washington's grandest theater, the Knickerbocker, collapsed

The roof, covered with 28 inches on Jan. 28, pressed down on a faulty truss. One edge of the truss slipped off the wall and fell onto the crowd of 300 Saturday night filmgoers below. Then the entire roof -- girders, beam, trusses, concrete -- collapsed like a sheet cake.

"After I fell quite a way the floor of the balcony seemed to open from under me and then I dropped through with nothing under me," survivor George Brodie wrote to his sister a few days later. "The screams around me woke me up. . . . I was practically buried under plaster and pieces of the chairs. Everything was pitch dark and as soon as I could I squirmed around and crawled out into a place that reminded me of a cave."

When the last corpse was pulled from the ruins at the southwest corner of 18th Street and Columbia Road NW, 98 people were dead and 133 were seriously injured.
