Forecasters have predicted more snow this week as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for ice.

The weather warning starts today at 6pm for parts of Scotland and North East England and by tomorrow morning, will also cover Wales and South West England.

It comes as Storm Arwen claimed at least three lives as it wreaked havoc across the UK with 100mph winds, heavy snow and rain.

It is estimated that about one million homes and businesses suffered damage during the first named storm of the season.

Snow showers are expected over higher ground in Scotland on Wednesday, and could be more widespread on Thursday, extending as far south as Devon.

Snow is likely to fall over hills on Friday, the Met Office said, and it could become heavy in places such as the Cairngorms in Scotland on Saturday.

The Met Office’s Stephen Dixon said the weather will be “turning colder” from Wednesday due to a northerly wind.

He added: “Winds will be especially high in exposed coastal areas in the north and north-east, with gusts in excess of 40mph expected.

“The cool conditions will see some snowfall in the high ground of the far north, and generally as sleet or rain in the low ground.

“That theme continues into Thursday, with a band of rain moving in from the west later in the day.”
