UK issued with more snowy and icy weather

Batten down the hatches, there’s more snow on the way

The UK is set to be hit with more wintery weather as a number of regions are due to be hit with rain, snow, ice, wind and generally grim conditions.

Less than a week after Storm Arwen first hit Britain, the Met Office have issued yet more yellow weather warnings following their previous messaging which threatened a “danger to life“.

As you can see, wintery conditions are being forecast for northern Scotland and areas of eastern England, with dangerous drifts of snow and icy patches set to start from Wednesday night running through till Thursday morning.
