Met Office warns of disruption from snow and ice in parts of the UK

Met Office meteorologist Liam Eslick said that temperatures will be about 5C to 6C lower than usual for this time of year.

Discussing the Artic air weather conditions, Eslick said: "Especially towards the north where we do have these warnings, we’re likely to see some travel disruption."

The Met Office meteorologist also advised drivers to be cautious when travelling, sharing: "So we would recommend people stick to the main roads and avoid country lanes where possible.

“These are the places that aren’t going to see any gritting or any road clearances for the next couple of days.

“So we recommend people take their time, make sure they have time to do their cars in the mornings and go steady.”

The National Highways has also issued a warning to road users, encouraging them to plan ahead as some rural communities warned they could be temporarily cut off.
