The national forecaster warned of potential disruptions to power lines, roads, railroads and even cuts to mobile phone services.

So before it gets cold check on friends, family and neighbours, who may be at risk and make sure they're heating homes to at least 18C, see if they need any particular help or just someone to talk to and keep an eye on the Met Office's forecasts and warnings.

"There is the potential for locally 5-10 cm of snow across eastern parts however where showers become more organised there may be more widespread snow cover". Those with ski vacations may find it hard to impossible to reach their destinations due to the sheer amount of snow, with skiing made more challenging due to frigid air temperatures and strong winds. There's also the possibility of streamer development where a constant line of showers develop say at the southern tip of The Isle of Man and dump large quantities of snow in a narrow area. However it will remain cold, with a strengthening southeasterly breeze.
