Big freeze bites as weekend snow clears

Must read

Freezing temperatures are continuing to grip the UK but snow that blanketed large parts of the country over the weekend is beginning to clear.

Clear skies and dry weather will ensure the east of the country will continue feeling the winter bite even after most of the snow has melted.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice in north-west and north-east England, Yorkshire and large sections of southern Scotland. It has also issued snow warnings for the Strathclyde and central, Tayside and Fife areas of Scotland.

In England, there is a small chance of snowfall around Birmingham and Leicester, as well as Lincolnshire and Humberside.

Temperatures are expected to hover around zero in the North, Yorkshire and the Midlands.

The capital will hover a few degrees above freezing, but it and the rest of the South East is unlikely to get much above 5C over the next day.

In the west, however, sleet and rain showers will keep temperatures markedly higher.

In Wales, Northern Ireland and the South West, temperatures could reach up to 7C.

It follows a white weekend which saw large swathes of the country covered in snow.

Images from around the UK showed snowmen being built and sledges being manned as people made the most of the weather.
