Snow and ice disturb United Kingdom transports

Snow and ice disturb United Kingdom transports

The Met Office has weather warnings in place for more snow and ice for most of the country, with some areas of south west England and Wales likely to see up to 25cm of snowfall on Sunday.

Temperatures will recover to closer to average, with a maximum temperature of 6 °C.

DESPITE the snowfall in much of Worcestershire having now stopped, a weather warning remains in place until tonight.

More snow fell across parts of Britain overnight, with bitter easterly winds also causing temperatures to drop.

'While flowering plants will nearly certainly flower again later in the season, frogspawn and insects in particular do not fare so well and this week's snow will undoubtedly see them perish'.

Drivers have been warned not to take routes across the Pennines and airports are preparing for flight disruption as more snowfall is expected to hit the United Kingdom on Sunday.

Charlotte Armitage, citizen science officer for the Woodland Trust, told the Metro: 'When we get prolonged mild periods as we have done recently, plants and wildlife are fooled into thinking the seasons are changing and start to become more active.

"It's going to be a very, very cold start, with a widespread frost and ice around as well", Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said.

Nicola Maxey from the Met Office said: "It's a good idea to keep an eye on the latest Met Office forecast and warnings for your area to ensure you're up to date with the latest situation".

The north-west of England, Yorkshire, the Midlands, London and south-east England have been the worst hit with the strong winds making temperatures feel as cold as -7C or -8C.

"It's not common for these areas to see this type of snow", said Mr Burkhill. "Meanwhile, parts of Dartmoor and South Devon could have a further 10-15 cm, with as much as 20-30 cm over some eastern parts of Dartmoor".

More snow has fallen across parts of the United Kingdom overnight as a cold snap dubbed the "mini beast from the east" sweeps in.

Another said: "Not settling but fat flakes".

Fantastic news for lovers of snow, there's more on the way as a second "Beast from the East" is set to hit us with as much as eight inches of snow today.

Additionally, further snow is possible, especially in the north.
