STORM Arwen hit Winchester over the weekend, bringing plummeting temperatures and snow flurries.

Whilst it was not as heavy as that snow day earlier in the year, the flurries were certainly enough to put people into the Christmas spirit.

And residents waking up on Monday morning to go to work certainly had a tough job to de-ice their cars.

In some places it was hard to know if it was a hard frost or a light dusting of snow.

The question now on everyone's lips is how long this cold weather will stay with us.

A yellow weather warning for ice is in place until 10am on Monday, but as we head into the middle of the week, temperatures are forecast to get milder.

Here is the Met Office weather forecast for the rest of the week:


It will stay cold today, with the 'feels like' temperature not getting higher than 1 degree all day.

3pm: Cloudy, 4C, feels like 1C

4pm: Cloudy, 3C, feels like 1C

5pm: Cloudy, 3C, feels like 0C

6pm: Cloudy, 2C, feels like -1C

Conditions will be overcast for much of the day, but with a few showers coming in overnight.

Rest of the week
