SEVERAL centimetres of snow are expected to fall in higher parts of eastern counties in the coming days, as the icy chill looks set to continue until next weekend.

Night-time temperatures will plummet to a low of -5C and motorists have been warned to take extra care.

Today and tomorrow will see temperatures of between four and eight degrees, but from Wednesday onwards it will turn decidedly colder, with day-time values of just two to five degrees. And by night, it will tumble to as low as minus five degrees.
