Brits in for -16C freeze and 8 inches of snow as Ogre from Oslo roars back

More snow and ice misery is on the way as the Ogre from Oslo roars back.

A -16C freeze will return and see another eight inches of snow, 70mph storms and washouts.

A 1,500-mile wide blitz from Norway – like December’s Trondheim Troll – will bring snow to the North tomorrow (Monday, March 13).

More flurries follow on Tuesday and a band of snow and rain will sweep across many parts on Wednesday before more of the white stuff by Friday.

The South and Midlands risk snow, with the North due a thick coating. Eight inches is expected for parts this week.

Britain’s nights are colder than Moscow’s -11C, with -15C in Scotland yesterday morning after -16C before the weekend.

The Ogre’s cold air from Norway will send daytime temperatures tumbling again to 3C to 6C for most by Wednesday.

Stormy gusts could nudge 70mph later in the week in the North, with downpours in the South.

Meanwhile, the Environment Agency issued 56 flood alerts and two warnings.

A Netweather forecaster said: "The cold northerly will see more snow and ice. Temperatures will plummet, with frost returning."

Giving his forecast for the early part of next week, Met Office deputy chief forecaster Daniel Rudman said: "There is an increasingly strong signal for colder air to once again feed into the north of the UK during Monday. This flow is likely to extend southwards with much of the UK likely to be under the influence of colder conditions overnight into Tuesday.

"Tuesday is set to remain a cold day, but it is not expected to be as cold as conditions have been this week, and there will be brighter periods for most. There are likely to be some showers too, although any snow fall is expected be over higher elevations."
