Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said: “We are in this pattern for seven days at least.
“We could see it continue for a while longer, there’s uncertainty in the evolution and how long it will last.
“However, the pattern for the next seven days is that it will remain cold and we will see double digit minus figures overnight in areas that are prone to frosts and areas where there is lying snow.”
Steve Willington said: “Yellow National Severe Weather Warnings for ice and snow have been issued for parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the east coast and South West England.
“Showers will turn more wintry with an increasing risk of snow as the week progresses, particularly in coastal areas or over higher ground.
“There will be widespread frosts with temperatures falling to as low as -10°C overnight in isolated spots by the end of the week.
“More severe weather warnings may be needed as we head through the week.”
