Weather: The Beast is back

After a mild few days cold weather is set to return.

Next weekend could see a similar set up that brought snow and ice to the region.

The so-called 'Beast from the East' is heading back this way.

It could mean temperatures will struggle to get to 3C by Saturday.

There is still time for the set up to change - so keep an eye on the forecast.
