A Met Office update has warned Brits that a major Arctic polar vortex is headed right this way, and it could last over a week.

Yellow weather warnings were listed for tomorrow (Monday, March 6) and Tuesday, March 7, with a stretch of the country to be hit by snow and ice.

Those same worries, which stretch from the tip of Scotland all the way down to the ports of Hull, will move their way down to the midlands and draw London into a polar vortex.

WXCharts has since provided a look into the weather warnings, with the worrying weather front set to spin the UK into a temporary tundra until Monday, March 13.

Those travelling tomorrow and on Tuesday should prepare accordingly, with "icy stretches" a likelihood as parts of the UK are hit with 5cm to 10cm of snow.

Power cuts, delays to travel and a chance of injury were all aired by the Met Office weather warning, with slight risks noted.

Their two-day coverage of yellow warnings kicks the week off with worries of an Arctic storm, with WXCharts showing it could be worse, and longer, than the Met are predicting.

The UK Health Security Agency said that the weather could "increase the health risks to vulnerable patients" as freezing temperatures are also expected.

A Met Office forecaster said: "The snow showers will predominantly impact northern and eastern areas, however, it will be cold across the UK, with widespread freezing conditions overnight."

Deputy Chief Meteorologist Chris Almond added: "Very cold air will spread across the UK from late on Sunday through early next week.

"This brings with it snow even to low levels in the north and east through Monday and Tuesday, and in excess of 10cm could accumulate, most likely on high ground in the north, but also settling for a time at lower levels."

He also echoed the "risk of some travel disruption and wintry hazards" that are "likely to persist through much of next week, even further south for a time".
