It's grit Britain: Brace yourself for a three week battering of snow, ice and subzero temperatures

Britain has been put on severe weather alert as forecasters warn of a freakishly cold spell sweeping in from Russia.

The big freeze is set to last about three weeks, with up to four inches of snow expected in the next seven days.

Forecasters say overnight temperatures could plunge to minus 14C (7F) in some areas over the weekend.

Virtually all regions will be hit, with frost, ice, sleet and freezing fog threatening travel chaos and misery for millions – especially the elderly.

Snow is predicted for the South and North East on Saturday night, with most places getting a blanketing through next week.

Met Office forecaster Helen Chivers said yesterday: “The cold weather will really start to set in over the weekend, bringing sleet and snow.

"Sunday night could fall to minus 6C in the countryside, with Monday down to -7C, and lying snow, clear skies and a lack of wind could make it even colder.”

Biggest snowfalls next week, up to four inches in places, are expected in the hilly areas of North Yorkshire, Wales and the South West – where overnight temperatures could plunge by 21C compared to Monday night’s low of 6.6C in Westonbirt, Gloucester.

Weather Channel forecaster Leon Brown said: “Temperatures will be very low compared to the month so far, hardly above 0C for many by day from Sunday and through much of next week.

“Overnight on Tuesday we could see minus 12C to minus 14C in the South West, where there is snow on the ground.”

Welfare organisations warned last night that a prolonged cold spell could have dire consequences for the most vulnerable.

They fear it could lead to an extra 30,000 deaths this winter as millions are afraid to keep the heating on in poorly insulated homes because of rising fuel costs.

Most at risk will be 11 million elderly people, with almost two million living below the poverty line, according to Age UK.

The last newspaper article stated it'd be the coldest within a few weeks (https://forum.boltonnuts.co.uk/t2723-coldest-winter-in-100-years?highlight=100+years) - I suppose this is a few weeks after that and therefore still could be...

I hate people who go on about the cold weather like it's a major surprise. That bint on Northwest Tonight (Diane summat) was almost wetting her knickers at the thought of a bit of frost for a few days.

The long term forecast suggests no snow in Preston.

When the media break stories like this and say ''britain is braced for a battering'', it normally means only london will get it and will only be about 1cm of snow which will apparantly ''cause havoc with the underground!!''.

Bit pissed about this though. My garden seems to think it's spring and everything is blooming and budding. It wouldn't be so bad if my missus actually did any gardening, but whilst she likes the idea of buying plants, it's left to me to do the digging and weeding when I can be assed. Soon it will all die - again. 2 years ago it got to -17 and I lost about two grand's worth of plants including my palm tree which had survived all the winters for >10years. I loved that palm - helped enhance the Mediterranean courtyard vibe which was perfect for summer barbies and general excessive alcoholism.

Please send donations of any bubble wrap you can spare to deepest Norfolk.

I've looked at the two week forecast for my area and there's no mention of snow. It might get a bit nippy if you're planning spending the night in your back garden. Other than that, more media bollocks.

Its all a sack of shit. What happened to the British Bulldog spirit. In the winter 'millions' die, always the elderley, and in the summer 'millions' of children suffer from the sun unless you wrap them in towels and 3 gallons of sun lotion. Its all bollocks. No doubt the schools will close at the fall of the first flake, and snow plans will be put in force. When I go to Germany, they are all set up and everythng is fine. Over here its a shambles because some twat tried to save £20 by not ordering the right tonnage of road salt. Until we change our mindset, we will remain the winter idiot of Europe. Strange how we will go and fight anyone, anywhere, but we can't cope with a bit of bad weather.

Some drifted past my window this afternoon. I have little to worry about in the penthouse suite. I have enough Vimto and Twirls to keep me going until Summer.

The gritters have been out in force this evening. We have had some fine snow but the ground is too wet and it isn't sticking.

Ha - my dad is from Lancashire and he loves Vimto. People from Lancashire seem obsessed by the stuff!

Well that was a bit of let down, where was the chaos on the roads? The 2 foot of snow that will bring us to a standstill? It barely even stuck to the pavements.

What a bloody joke. The ground is wet and is above freezing so any snow is likely to melt. We seem to have been lucky in the north west.
