Russian Federation itself was not spared, with its meteorological service warning of "abnormally cold" temperatures until Wednesday and temperatures in the Moscow region expected to fall to minus 24 Celsius on Sunday night, and minus 35 Celsius in the centre of the country.

The "Beast from the East", as Britain's media have named it, is expected to bring cold air from Russian Federation over the next few days that will make it feel even chillier than thermometers indicate.

In Poland, where at least four people have died of exposure since Saturday, temperatures dropped overnight to minus 12 deg Celsius while parts of Lithuania, which has had three deaths, saw the mercury fall below minus 20.

Rome woke to its first snowfall in six years on Monday as chilling winds from Siberia swept across Europe , bringing freezing temperatures that have claimed at least seven lives, disrupted travel and closed schools.

Temperatures in France are forecast to drop to -10 deg C and feel as low as -18 deg C over the coming days.

On Sunday, a 35-year-old homeless man was found dead in the southeastern city of Valence, and two days earlier, a 62-year-old man died in his cabin in the woods outside Paris.

In Belgium, one local mayor has warned homeless people they will be detained by police if they refuse to go to shelters. The polar vortex split also sent record cold spilling into the Western U.S., while the East Coast set all-time record highs last week.

The "Beast from the East", as the phenomenon has been dubbed by the British media, is expected to bring chilling winds from Russian Federation over the next week that will make it feel even colder than thermometers indicate.

According to the UK Met Office, the Arctic blast has plunged Britain into its coldest weather for 27 years.

The warning in the north of the country stretches down from Caithness and Sutherland down to parts of North Yorkshire, where 5-10cm is expected widely and as much as 40cm over the hills.
