The Met Office has warned of a "bitingly cold" Wednesday morning, bringing risks of ice and snow after parts of the United Kingdom were hit with the white stuff on Tuesday.

The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings covering the majority of the United Kingdom for snow and ice on Wednesday. A second warning for snow and ice is then in place from 3pm tomorrow (31 Jan) until 12pm on Friday (1 Feb). Drivers should therefore exercise extra caution while this is in force.

Thursday and Friday's weather forecast suggests further snowfalls in Northamptonshire, with the Met Office's website predicting snow from 6pm through to 9am with temperatures around the 0C mark.

The weather warnings - which advise of potential disruption - have been extended ahead of a band of cold weather hitting the West Country in the coming days.

It says: "Further snow showers are expected into Wednesday morning, these more frequent across northwest parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland".

Justin Rose wins Farmers Insurance Open; Tiger Woods tied for 20th
Justin Rose had three big mistakes and still kept a three-shot lead Saturday with a 3-under 69 at the Farmers Insurance Open . Rose, 38, has won one major championship - the 2013 US Open - and an Olympic gold medal in 2016.

And he predicted a strong chance the weather front will combine with freezing fog to create some snow showers.

Later, heavy showers are likely along coastal areas and we could get isolated thunderstorms. "If you're heading out on the roads, be aware your journey will take a lot longer than normal", Mr Burkill added.

Some places could see as much as 5-10cm although this is more likely in higher places.

Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are expected.

The Met Office said air bowing in from the North Pole will bring the most snow of the winter so far, with temperatures at night expected to verge near -11C. The temperature of -1C will increase to 2C by lunchtime.
