The UK is set to be crippled by a sub-zero Arctic blast in the coming days with a cold snap set to further tighten its grip.
Hampshire and Suffolk saw lows of -5°C and -4°C respectively on Friday, while it will drop to -1°C by Sunday in London.
And things could be about to get even chillier as we move into next week with every day forecast for below zero temperatures across most of Britain.
Public health officials issued an amber cold weather alert which lifted on Friday, warning there might be an ‘observed increase in mortality across the population’.
Yellow snow and ice warnings have also been issued by the national weather agency for most of the north of Scotland from midnight on Sunday until 11.59pm.

The warning spans Stonehaven and Aberdeen in the east to Skye and the Western Isles.
All parts of Scotland north of these areas are likely to be affected, with temperatures as low as -4°C expected.
The Met Office warned travel disruption is possible with some roads and railways affected, and longer journey times by road, bus and train are likely.
It also warned of icy patches on roads, pavements and cycle paths, and said there is a small chance that power cuts will occur.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather warning of snow and ice for Northern Ireland early next week.
The warning comes into force on Monday at 3am and runs until 11.59pm the same day.
