SNOW is set to cover almost the entire country by next week with Brits in the grips of nine DAYS of ice and frost.
Gales, torrential rain and wintry downpours are expected over the next few days as winter hits the UK.
It comes just days after the catastrophic storm Arwen caused power outages in parts of the country.
And the next wintry blast is expected to hit on Tuesday.
While it has not been named yet, it is possible it will be given the name Barra.
According to WX Charts, snow is expected to hit some part of the UK every day from today until next Tuesday.
According to forecasts, 70mph snow is set to hit most parts of the country as temperatures are expected to plummet.
Jim Dale, meteorologist for British Weather Services, said: “A low-pressure system is deepening very rapidly, and it could generate something which will warrant another named storm.
“South-western parts of the country will be worst affected, and the main issue will be the wind although there is the potential for rain and for showers to turn wintry.
“We will be keeping our eye on this system, which has the potential to whip up gusts of 60 to 70mph.”
According to the Met Office, Monday will see rain and wind especially in the north and west parts of the country.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see snow on the hills with coastal gales in the west.
Exacta Weather’s James Madden said: “Rain will start turning to snow across parts of the country on Monday, ahead of the storm arriving on Tuesday.
“Tuesday will see an extensive and rapidly deepening area of low pressure working its way northwards across the country initially bringing heavy rain and strong winds.
“This will turn to snow as the storm system meets colder conditions across the UK.
“With the storm coinciding with snow, we could see a ‘snow bomb’ effect where heavy snow erupts suddenly with stormy conditions.”
The Met Office said it is "keeping an eye on" the storm as it develops.
Spokesman Grahame Madge said: “We can’t rule out a name, but we can’t rule one in either.
“While Ireland looks likely to be worst affected from Monday, this system will affect the UK and it is the most significant feature we are seeing certainly for the next five days.
“If the storm tracks south of the UK, there will be an associated risk of snow.
“The system is expected to start having an influence on the UK from Monday and into mid-week.
“The main features appear to be the wind and rain, and our meteorologists are keeping an eye on it.”
Meanwhile, forecasters have not ruled out the possibility of a White Christmas as December is set to be very cold with temperatures expected to reach -10C.
Mr Madden said: “December will start to turn very cold early on and these cold conditions will continue throughout the month.
“There are some notable snow events looking possible around just after the second week of the month, and these could be widespread and heavy wintry downpours.
“Christmas Day is looking largely dry and cold at the moment, but things can change, and we still can’t rule out a White Christmas.
“Throughout the month, widespread frosts and temperatures of -10C or below will be possible as north and north-easterly winds develop.”
