The 'Beast from the East' has definitely hit London, with snow already this week but what is the outlook for the next few days?

Well the snow we saw on Monday morning (February 26) was probably not the end of the cold spell.

There are amber weather warnings in place for London and the south east on Tuesday morning (February 27) and most of Wednesday (February 28) as well as yellow weather warnings across the week until Thursday.

The snow and bitterly cold air is moving in towards London from the Russian coast, and has been dubbed 'the Beast from the East'.

Temperatures over the next 24 hours are expected to drop as low as -4 C at 5am on Tuesday morning, with Weather.com predicting it will actually feel more like -9 C.
