    The Met Office has put out additional cold weather warnings for tonight (March 10) as more snow looks likely to hit multiple parts of the UK going into the weekend.

    The East Midlands and East of England are both included in the updated ice warning, which came into effect at 7pm today.

    Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and the whole of East Anglia have been included in the areas blanketed by the forecaster’s ice weather warning.

    Yellow warnings are also in place for Scotland and Yorkshire for snow and ice respectively.

    Brits across the country have already suffered at the hand of the weather today, with disruption having been caused to trains and airports.

    Roads have also been badly impacted by the snow and ice, with the A66 in Durham and the A628 Woodhead Pass in South Yorkshire both partially closed under a blanket of the white stuff.

    Between Manchester and Sheffield, multiple trees are reported to have fallen on train lines, Network Rail reported, causing major closures and delays.

    Delays were seen among multiple service providers, including Merseyrail, TransPennine Express, East Midlands Railway, Northern, Chiltern Railways, South Western Railway and Transport for Wales.

    The latest warning is set to be lifted tomorrow morning with overnight temperatures expected to be especially low tonight.

    Chief Forecaster Jason Kelly said: “The worst of the snowfall in England is over for now, but further weather warnings will be in force to cover the further hazards brought by frost and ice.

    “During the early hours of Saturday a weather front will bring warmer air in from the South West to extend across most parts of the UK during Sunday," he added.

    "As we have seen over the last few days, the influence of this warm and moist air from the South West will bump into the cold air bringing a risk of further snowfall on the leading edge for a time.

    "However, it will also bring heavy rainfall for many as it moves across the UK."

    After a warmer period over the weekend, colder weather is expected to return next week across the UK.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Forecaster Daniel Rudman said: “There is an increasingly strong signal for colder air to once again feed into the north of the UK during Monday.

    "This flow is likely to extend southwards with much of the UK likely to be under the influence of colder conditions overnight into Tuesday.

    “Tuesday is set to remain a cold day, but it is not expected to be as cold as conditions have been this week, and there will be brighter periods for most. There are likely to be some showers too, although any snowfall is expected be over higher elevations.”
