Although the weather warning does cover the Fylde coast, Blackpool, which rarely sees snow fall, is expected to miss out on the white stuff.

The Chief Forecaster's assessment said: "There is a lot of uncertainty in the extent and timing of snow during Tuesday".

Disruptive snow showers are expected from Tuesday onwards, although Galway and the West may not experience heavy snow, if any.

Temperatures will remain below 0C in some places dropping to minus double figures overnight.

Walkers and hikers have been warned not to underestimate the conditions - with the bright sunshine set to be followed by icy temperatures nearly 6C colder than normal.

Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles said: "The feels-like temperature will be 5C lower than what we see on the thermometer because of a strong easterly wind chill".

Officials have issued several snow warnings, saying that power outages and mobile phone service could be impacted, The Telegraph reported.

Saturday night will be clear and cold with temperatures falling back to -1C.

It has also issued two yellow severe weather warnings for snow.

The weekend will be chilly but not out of kilter with the weather so far during February, which has been unseasonably cold.

Unfortunately, that's due to a 'polar vortex' brewing in the east that could bring the coldest week in five years.

Snow is expected to hit the region in the early hours of Tuesday morning with prolonged showers is expected throughout the day.

"You may have heard about the "Beast from the East".

In its 'How cold will it be next week and where will it snow?' the forecaster is also alreadyy warning that the bitterly cold weather which will bring snow could last beyond this week.

Meteorological spring begins March 1, so the unusually cold weather comes at a time when temperatures usually get a little warmer, AccuWeather reported.
