Cold snap brings snow to parts of UK

Parts of the UK were hit with snow after a severe weather warning was put in place as the freezing temperatures continued.

There were white-out conditions on the A66 in northern England as snow fell across the country from East Anglia up to Cumbria.

Heavy snow, rain and sleet hit the Pennine chain, coupled with strong north-easterly winds.

A yellow warning had been put place across north west and north east England, Yorkshire and Humber, and the West and East Midlands.

But the mercury is expected to rise into the high single figures on Monday, as the icy conditions give way to slightly warmer temperatures.

Helen Roberts, from the Met Office, said: "Maximum temperatures on Sunday will probably not be dissimilar to Saturday, so we are looking at generally between about 2C to 6C (36F to 42.8F), right the way across the country.

"Then into the start of next week we start to see some slightly less cold weather actually pushing in.

"So by Monday probably more in the way of sunshine, temperatures into high single figures."
