Cambridge could be held in the grip of sub-zero conditions and snow until the end of the week, according to forecasters – with a new weather warning in place on Friday.

Forecasters have warned the weather event, dubbed The Beast from the East , will halt warm air coming in from the Atlantic jet stream, allowing extremely chilly winds from Siberia to blast the country into well into March.

The Met Office has claimed that this will be the coldest period seen in Britain for years, after lows of -5C were recorded over the weekend, marking the lowest temperature in the week leading up to March since 1986.

A spokeswoman said: "During this time, 5-10cm of snow is expected quite widely. Where showers become organised though, most likely across Scotland, areas of 15-25cm are likely, locally as much as 40cm.

"Strong winds will lead to drifting of snow and severe wind chill, while lightning could be an additional hazard, particularly near coasts."
