Severe warning issued as forecasters say up to 10cm of snow expected

The Met Office has issued an amber "danger to life" warning for parts of the United Kingdom as icy roads and heavy snow up to 10cm deep is expected to settle a day after the cold snap led to disruption for airports and schools.

"Recently we have rightly seen many weather forecasters and broadcasters north and south take a positive initiative and accurately reflect the warnings in each part of the country, thereby improving information sharing and sensibly reflecting the status of weather warnings throughout our small island".

Parts of the United Kingdom are braced for a potent wintry blast that could cause some treacherous conditions and travel disruption.

After Tuesday night's smattering of snow, another weather warning remains in place for snow and ice across the region from 1pm today until 9pm on Friday.

What does the Met Office say to expect in it's weather warning?

The Met Office said: "The snow could be heavy at times and around 3-7cm could settle within two to three hours, with up to 10cm in some places".

The Met Office has released a yellow weather warning predicting snow and further icy condition could be on the way from about 7pm today. "The highest snowfall accumulations are likely to be in areas above 150 metres or so".

The force added: "We know from a year ago how disruptive snow fall and icy conditions can be, especially on our road networks".

Braemar reached minus 14.4C, said the Met Office - the lowest since Holbeach in Lincolnshire recorded minus 15.6C in 2012.

"So in true British fashion we are hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst".
