A Met Office statement has warned of a "100% probability" of severe cold weather and icy conditions until Friday morning.
"Bitterly cold easterly winds will persist this week, bringing snow showers to north-east England and light snow flurries across other areas of England.
"With lying snow and partial snow melt during the daytimes, icy conditions are likely during the nights."
The wintry conditions are now expected to last well into April with this month on track to become the coldest March since 1962.
A group of students from Wolverhampton who were stranded in extreme snow in Scotland for more than three days tell their story of survival.
Cold weather can pose a real health risk to older and disabled people, but everyone can gain from preparing their homes for the cold.
