Snow, ice and travel chaos warning after Storm Caroline

Snow, ice and travel chaos warning after Storm Caroline

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for all regions of the United Kingdom apart from northern Scotland, where a more severe amber warning has been issued for 7 December.

There'll be snow accumulations in many exposed areas with wintry mix of rain and sleet near coasts. More than a year since the European Union referendum, exports of goods across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are all up.

With temperatures not much above freezing, feeling terribly cold - more so in the winds.

The warning notes: "Snow showers will continue to affect parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, northern England and parts of the Midlands - 2-5 cm of snow is likely in places over the warning area".

Road, rail and air travel delays are likely, as well as stranding of vehicles and public transport cancellations.

The Met Office says Storm Caroline's winds are now confined to the far north-east of mainland Scotland and the Northern Isles, and there could be gusts of 70-80 miles per hour at times, especially over Shetland, on Friday.

The Environment Agency says it is seeing "relatively high tides and for the Thursday evening high tide we will experience an approximate 0.7m surge due to the Storm Caroline low pressure system".
