Date forecasters say Essex will be hit by snow yet again this month

Essex is bracing for more snow as temperatures across the UK are set to plummet.

Heavy snowstorms during Storm Darcy battered parts of Essex last month, causing widespread disruption. .

Schools were closed to children of key workers, and there were several impassable roads as a result of the wintry conditions which lasted for almost a week.

And it seems the warmer climes seen over the weekend were a false dawn as forecasters are warning Brits not to get ready for spring just yet.

Freezing temperatures are set to make a return with the very real possibility of snow, particularly in Scotland and northern parts of the country though also in the south.

According to the forecast, temperatures are set to drop from Monday, March 8, with it gradually becoming cooler for the next week that follows.
