  Cold weather and snow coming soon
Updated 22 January 2004, 16.54
Snow is coming to the UK
Wearing hats, scarves and gloves will be really important in a few days' time as very cold weather is coming.

Weather experts reckon snow and ice is going to hit the north of England on Monday, and then move south later.

They think the temperatures are going to drop well below zero, and if it gets windy it's going to feel even colder.

The cold weather is coming across the Atlantic Ocean from the US and Canada where it's been as cold as -40 Celsius, but it shouldn't be that bad in the UK.

It was amazingly cold in New York

There are worries that the cold will catch lots of people out, especially in the south of England where it's normally warmer than in the north.

The AA is warning people now in the hope that they'll be well prepared and wrapped up nice and warm.

You never know, school might even be cancelled! But then again, it might not....
