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.

Britain will be hit by a seven-day cold snap from the weekend, with snow, frost and gale-force winds set to arrive just as the nation thought winter was finished.

The country basked in 20C temperatures at the weekend - the hottest of the year - as big crowds enjoyed the Grand National and FA Cup semi-finals and packed beaches and tourist attractions.

But the coldest winter in 31 years has a final sting in the tail.

Forecasters warned of 2C nighttime temperatures - low enough for frost - for the rest of this week, with heavy rain at the weekend and then snow through next week in northern England and Scotland.

Blizzard slams Germany

The blizzard “Petra” hammered Germany with more snow on Friday, causing countess road accidents, shutting down air traffic and trapping hundreds of people in an icy train.

The rail passengers suffered a nightmare scenario on Thursday evening when their trip came to a chilly halt. The regional train between Hamburg and Lübeck stopped cold when it lost power due to snow damage along contact wires.

With no heat, light or explanation from train conductors between 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm, passengers reportedly panicked. Several tried to break open windows and escape, while others used emergency exits to venture into the darkness – a major breach of safety because other trains were still running on nearby tracks.

“Some passengers became panicked, cried, called for help,” one witness told daily Lübecker Nachrichten. “They believed it was an attack.”

Others called the police, who along with local fire fighters drove some 150 passengers to a nearby sports hall from the site near Tremsbüttel. Several passengers were treated for hypothermia.

On Friday afternoon national rail provider Deutsche Bahn said passengers on the train would each be compensated €250 for their trouble.

The German Weather Service (DWD) warned more snow was likely this weekend after a brief respite on Saturday.

Snow On Way As Temperatures Plunge, Hannah Thomas-Peter, Sky News Online

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."

Wintry weather is set to continue into half term next week with little sign of a respite in the chilly spell which has enveloped Britain

Meteorologists predicted that more snow, sleet, rain and freezing fog are on the way.

"It is likely to be unsettled again after the weekend," a spokesman said. "It could be absolutely anywhere, although snow is more likely on higher ground".

Today saw more heavy snow and ice, especially in East Sussex and Kent with more than five inches falling in some areas.

Main roads in both counties, including the A259 which links Eastbourne with Bexhill-on-Sea were particularly treacherous. The AA was bracing itself to handle 14,000 breakdowns, compared to 9,000 on a normal Thursday.
