Bad news for all the warm weather lovers, it is about to get an awful lot colder.

The Met Office has warned there is colder weather yet to come after snow and sleet showers hit London last night.

Today is expected to be the chilliest of the week with some places not getting above 2 to 3C.

Coastal areas can expect more snow and sleet showers throughout the day, and there is still a weather warning for ice.

A spokeswoman from the Met Office said: "Those concerned about the yellow warnings should allow extra time for journeys and take extra care on untreated roads and pavements.

"It's patches of ice left over from snow showers that people should look out for."

Some coastal showers will continue overnight while many central and eastern areas are expected to be clear, cold and frosty.

Although the weather will warm slightly towards the end of the week, more cold weather is set for the weekend.

The spokeswoman said: "Gradually some slightly warmer air will push in for the latter part of the week, but we have a band of rain pushing in Saturday which will push much colder air in behind it."
