Met Office forecaster Martin Bowles said that cold air from eastern Europe is once again to blame for the influx of snow.

But the good news is that it shouldn’t be as severe as the recen t bad weather brought in from the Beast from the East and Storm Emma.

Mr Bowles told ‘It’s not likely to be anything like as bad as two weeks ago, but we could see between 2cm and 5cm of snow.’

The warning is in place through the entirety of Sunday and covers a large swathe of southern England, including London, and stretching

According to the Met Office, snow showers are likely, and the snow could settle, disrupting the roads and public transport services.

The maximum temperature on Sunday will be as low as 0C or 1C, Mr Bowles added.

He said: ‘We have got another spell of cold air from eastern Europe, with high pressure over Scandinavia, so the whole country will get very cold air over the weekend.

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

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

Mr Bowles added: ‘We will see temperatures starting to drop on Friday, and Monday is expected to be cold, but with slightly less snow.

‘From Tuesday the high pressure will have moved further south.’
