Britain is set to be hit by a fortnight of freezing temperatures and snow fall after the killer Storm Arwen ripped through the country.

Three people have died over the weekend as the horror weather pattern caused frozen flurries to hit parts of the UK along with gusts of almost 100mph.

Now forecasters warn freezing conditions are set to carry on into December.

The Met Office has said Sunday will remain cold, although the more dangerous weather of the weekend is likely to give way to more moderate showers.

But WX Charts show areas in the north of England could see a staggering eight inches of snow on the ground over the next few days.

The charts suggest the wintery weather will continue next Friday affecting England, Scotland and Wales.

And Brits will be braced for weeks of cold conditions as more snow is also forecast for December 13.

It comes after Storm Arwen ripped through the country in the last few days, bringing snowstorms and serious gales.

As the country was plunged into subzero temperatures, 33ft waves were reported on coastlines and snow ploughs were called in to free lorries trapped in blizzards.

The storm also claimed the lives of at least three people on Friday night.

A school head teacher became the first victim of the huge storm after his car was hit by a falling tree in Northern Ireland.

A 35-year-old man was also killed by a falling tree in Aberdeenshire which landed on top of his pick-up truck.

Police returning from the tragic scene back to their to their van were stunned to find their own vehicle flattened by another tree.
