This comes after Essex Weather predict temperatures would hit zero this week, and into next week.

The Met Office say snow may push in across parts of east and southeast England, leading to a risk of travel disruption especially on Monday morning.

Here is what to expect:

  • There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel

  • There is a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off

  • There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected

  • A small chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces

  • A small chance that untreated pavements and cycle paths become impassable
