Temperatures dropped to as low as -10C on Sunday night bringing snow to many parts of the UK and leaving some without power as Storm Arwen continues to rage on.

This marked the "coldest night of the season", with the chilly weather set to continue until the new year, in what meteorologists predict to be the coldest winter since 2010/11.

Snow is also expected to return later this week, with Friday being touted as the most likely day.

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings of severe ice across large parts of England for Monday, including London, Manchester, Manchester and Newcastle.

North West Motorway Police said 120 lorries got "stuck in the snow" on the M62, while Northern Powergrid said 240,000 customers lost power temporarily.

This comes as punters were snowed in for a third consecutive night at the UK’s highest pub, located in the Yorkshire Dales.

A huge amount of snow cut off around 60 people on Friday night who were out for an Oasis tribute act.

The heavy snow meant that pubgoers were unable to drive home and could only "escape" on foot.

Those inside the Tan Hill Inn in Richmond have instead been passing the time by building snowmen, taking part in a quiz and kindly holding a collection for the staff.

A British Weather Services meteorologist has said storms could be prevalent throughout December.

Jim Dale told the Daily Express: "Storm Arwen was the beginning of many. The potential is there for a run of storms through the festive season and perhaps beyond.

"So far this autumn, the weather has been too settled and tranquil, and this always leads to a counterbalance."

He added: "I would not be surprised to now see storms as a dominant feature not just through December, but into the start of next year."

James Madden, a forecaster for Exacta Weather, said: "December is now looking to be a cold month throughout.

"From mid-month and into the final third of December could see some sudden stratospheric movements bringing an even colder north-east or easterly wind that could persist for a number of weeks.

"Snow on Christmas Day is more likely in the north of the country, but things can change rapidly, and we can’t rule out festive snow anywhere."
