Following snowy conditions throughout Saturday and into Sunday morning, police have warned of hazardous driving conditions, with numerous roads made impassable by snow and ice. Rail lines have also been affected, including cancellation of trains on lines between Bedwyn and Newbury until 13:00 (local time) and between Exeter and Barnstaple until 12:00. The adverse weather has forced a halt to operations at Bristol airport (BRS) until 12:00, while East Midlands (EMA) airport is expected to reopen at 09:30. Disruptions have also been reported at London's Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN) and Stanstead (STN) airports, with hundreds of flights cancelled from LHR on Sunday. Residual delays and further cancellations are expected over the coming hours and into tomorrow.

The most adversely affected regions, with amber warnings (the second highest on a three-tiered scale, possible  risk to life) in affect are the North West, South West, Wales, the Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber, South East England and London. Yellow (be aware) warnings are in place for much of the rest of the UK, with bitter cold conditions and heavy winds also forecast for parts of the country.
