Frozen UK braced for more ice and snow

The wintry weather is forecast to continue into the early part of next weekIce and freezing temperatures are expected across the UK, as well as more snow – particularly in eastern parts of the country.

BBC Weather predicts "a very slippery start for just about everywhere" on Sunday.

While there could be snow flurries for much of the UK, as much as 8cm is forecast for south-east and eastern England, then north-east England later.

Wintry weather caused widespread travel problems on Friday and Saturday.

Heathrow Airport will be hit by a third day of cancellations and delays, with a planned 20% reduction to the flight schedule on Sunday because of forecast snow and low visibility.

The Met Office has issued a yellow "be aware" ice warning covering almost the whole of England, all of Wales and Northern Ireland, and the south-west corner of Scotland.

The warning says: "The public should be aware of the risk of localised difficult travel conditions due either to existing snow cover, or to icy surfaces."

There are also yellow snow warnings for eastern parts of England and Scotland, stretching across the Midlands into north Wales.

Wales could face the coldest weather on Sunday, with forecasts suggesting temperatures could fall as far as -5C overnight and fail to get above zero all day.
