Renewed warning for motorists travelling in the Mini Beast from the East

Mar 20, 2018, 01:59

We truly felt the impact of the Mini Beast from the East over the weekend, with wind, ice and snow causing a headache for many of us.

The passengers faced severe delays this morning on the Jubilee line after service between North Greenwich and Stratford was affected due to signal failure.

On the trains, South Western Railway has warned that the snow and cold weather conditions could affect journeys.

A spokesman for British Airways said: "Poor weather conditions are forecast across parts of the United Kingdom across the weekend so we have merged a small number of flights travelling to or from Heathrow Airport".

It will turn a little less cold through Monday with a maximum temperature of 7C.

This could lead to an increase in accidents as well as injuries from slips and falls.

Wattisham in Suffolk saw 15cm of snow fall overnight Saturday and into Sunday morning, while Nottingham awoke to a covering 13cm deep.

'Separate Amber warnings are in force for those areas most likely to see disruption.

"Tonight there will be further snow in places at first".

"With light winds it's going feel nearly quite pleasant out there on Tuesday afternoon and that sunshine certainly helping to thaw virtually all the snow at lower levels across Britain through Tuesday".

POLICE are still urging drivers to take care, particularly on higher ground and on country roads after last night's high winds and snow in York and North Yorkshire last night.

The Met Office has said there's a couple of frosty nights still in store for most of the United Kingdom, before milder weather on Thursday and Friday, which is something to look forward to, eh?

By Sunday temperatures will plunge even more.

"Some showers sink south through central and eastern England".
