Guys, it's official: snow is coming and you can watch the forecast here:
A yellow weather warning for snow and ice has been issued throughout Wednesday and Thursday across Britain including Northern Ireland, Scotland and across England and Wales.
The west of Scotland as well as western areas of the UK will be the most affected, with wintry weather also expected in north Wales, some areas of south Wales and across the Midlands.
Yorkshire and Manchester will also see snow showers, as well as Oxford and Norwich. We don't want to excite Londoners *too* much but it's expected the capital could see a flurry of snow, too.
Meanwhile, the rest of the UK will wake up to freezing conditions tomorrow, with temperatures dipping below zero.
The Met Office has advised some roads and railways will likely be affected and recommend leaving extra time for journeys via road, bus and train.
The warnings are currently in place until midday tomorrow - but this could change throughout today, so keep checking the Met Office website for details.
A further two yellow weather warnings for rain are in place on Friday and Saturday. These have been issued across Wales as well as Manchester, the north west of England and the Lake District.
Gale force winds are also expected to continue this week, too, so pack your raincoat or be faced with another broken brolly.
"Tonight and into tomorrow morning we are concerned about some wet weather across the south turning to snow for a time particularly through the morning rush hour," a Met Office meteorologist said.
"We're also concerned about tumbling temperatures overnight, allowing things to turn icy where we've seen the showers.
"Into Wales, parts of the Midlands and the Cotswolds, we could see snow falling in the early hours of Thursday morning. The band of weather in northern England will also have some snow.
"Into the morning, snow showers across western Scotland and Northern Ireland [could fall] onto frozen surfaces [meaning] it could be quite icy here.
"We've also got a band of wintry weather across northern England, north Wales and across the Midlands, spreading into East Anglia [...] It could be falling through rush hour on some of the main routes, so a bit of a cause for concern."
