SNOW will hit the UK in days with temperatures plunging to 1C, the Met Office warned.
Brits are braced for chilly weather after the forecaster predicted more wintry conditions this month.
And it could see the white stuff hit parts of the nation in just days.
The Met Office long range weather forecast has predicted some "wintry showers" and "snow" which could hit as early as Sunday.
The forecaster said: "Light winds are expected for most, but moderate or fresh in the east.
"For the rest of the period, settled conditions are most likely across the country, with some wintry showers and snow in the north and east at times.

"There is an increasing chance of it turning more unsettled later with spells of rain or snow becoming more likely."
Even in southern regions, temperatures are also predicted to drop as low as 1C over the coming days, warns the Met Office.
Looking even further ahead, "seasonal wintry showers" are expected across the country between March 15 and March 29.
But those in northern areas may be at risk of "heavy snow" at times.

The Met Office said: "Rain and strong winds are likely in the south, rain turning heavy at times.
"Colder and drier conditions are expected in the north, with wintry showers and a risk of heavy snow at times.
"Temperatures overall will likely be below normal, but milder in the south through the middle of March and perhaps beyond.
However, the Met Office did say that the below-average temperatures should gradually trend up by the end of the month.
And despite a chance of snow the weather may not be as dramatic as 2018’s “Beast From The East”
The first day of March sees another cloudy day today with some showers in pockets.
Today, showers are mainly going to be witnessed in the eastern and central areas.
While north-western Scotland and the south and southeast may get to see some sunshine.
For the rest of the week, it will be mostly dry with light winds and some sunny spells.
Overnight frost is expected and there may be a few light showers in places, with snow on the hills and in the Northern Isles on Saturday.
Explaining next week's forecast, Aidan McGivern, from the Met Office, said: "During the weekend, low pressure over the Mid-North Atlantic will start to feed energy northwards and allow high pressure over the UK to migrate towards Greenland.
