'As far as the snow is concerned, we think it is going to be mainly in the south east part of the country'.

The notorious "Beast From The East", dubbed due to it's origins from Russian Federation, swept the United Kingdom at the end of February bringing us snowy conditions out of the ordinary for this time of year.

"This is most likely near the Thames estuary and the Wash, and these snow showers could then spread westwards".

It will also be a short spell of bad weather, with temperatures set to return to normal springtime levels by Wednesday.
