Our forecasters are predicting a spell of heavy snow during Tuesday and Wednesday over some parts of the UK.
At this stage, the areas most likely to see the heaviest snow are Wales and some parts of the Midlands, leading to significant travel disruption in the worst effected areas.
Met Office Chief Forecaster Andy Page said: "The snow could fall in some locations that have missed the heaviest falls so far this winter and people should stay in touch with the latest weather forecasts."
Over southernmost counties of England heavy rain is more likely over the the next couple of days, with the risk of localised flooding.
The cold weather is likely to continue as the year draws to a close, with sharp overnight frosts in northern areas and further sleet or snow showers in places.
