Published

Almost all of the UK is under yellow weather warnings for severe snow and wind in the week ahead.

The Met Office has announced the yellow weather warning for the whole of England and Wales, and three quarters of Scotland.

A terrifying map illustrates the size of the affected area, stretching from County Durham to Kent.

Heavy snow is anticipated across northern England and Scotland, which is likely to bring travel disruption especially over higher routes.

The Met Office has also shed a light on what the weather will be like over the next 10 days.

Britons are expected to see the weather being more settled with higher pressures and rain from time to time within the next few days.

There will be early spells across eastern areas on Saturday, however, thick cloud will appear from the west, which brings outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

Sunday will resume the dullness and cloudiness along with some patches of mist.

Mostly in the south and west there will be rain and drizzle.
