Warnings issued as country prepares for severe cold weather

Brent Walker, Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, said: "There is potential for this cold spell to be the coldest for several years in the south".

With the high pressure remaining over Scandinavia for a number of days, the cold weather will remain and potentially last until the beginning of March.

"Disruptive" snow showers have been forecast from Tuesday onwards, particularly in the east and southeast, which means there is possibility that some schools might be affected.

Saturday and Sunday will be even colder still, with lows of -2 and -3 on Saturday and Sunday night respectively, with a widespread sharp to severe frost.

The Met Office in the United Kingdom is also monitoring the situation.

The delegation said the concentration of meldonium found in Krushelnitckii's sample suggested he would not have derived a benefit. The CAS said that the results obtained by the team of Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation in the event are disqualified.

Normal temperatures in London at the end of February are around 50 degrees Fahrenheit, but are expected to be in the lower 20s next week, AccuWeather reported.

It will be between 4C and 8C during the day, but it will drop to -2C in some areas that night. Temperatures will vary from 5º to 8º, in fresh to strong southeasterly winds.

"Tonight will be cloudy and mostly dry with just a few spots of drizzle".

"This happens because we will have a prevailing westerly wind, when it arrives winds tend to separate and change track before meeting again from opposite directions". As a result, the increased likelihood of a cold spell of weather has been forecast for many days, but there is now greater confidence about the time scale and also the extent of snowfall. It will become colder, with temperatures of -1 degrees rising to 7 degrees before falling again in the evening.

Sunday will be most sunny and dry with a high of around 6C. Snow may fall at one to three inches a day between Monday and Thursday.
