Snow may be forecast for many parts of the UK this week - but weather experts say we're still on course for one of the warmest Januarys on record.
Temperatures as high as 13C are expected in the south today - the normal temperatures for April - but the mercury is set to drop again, with up to four inches of snow forecast for parts of northern England and Scotland tomorrow morning (Thursday).
The recent "cold snap" has seen temperatures fall dramatically around the UK. In the Scottish town of Aboyne, temperatures plummetted to -10.5C, while Chesham in Buckinghamshire hit lows of -9C this week.
At the same time, reports abound of Spring coming early, with plants and flowers blooming months early all over the country.
"Tomorrow, we're looking at up to 5-10cm snow north of Penines, and highlands up to 15 -20 cm," a Met Office spokesman told AOL Travel.
