Travel disruption from snow and ice looks set to continue this evening, before Britain is struck by another burst of heavy rain and gales over the weekend.
With Storm Dennis set to slam into the UK on Saturday, forecasters are warning that more wintry conditions this evening could make driving treacherous.
Cumbria, Northumberland and vast swathes of Scotland have been warned of ‘blizzard conditions’ by the Met Office as snow showers combine with strong winds.
The regions are subject of a yellow weather warning with up to 10cm of snow forecast in higher parts, while Northern Ireland could see further snow showers, forecasters said.
Motorists were seen struggling in the wet conditions today, including one driver who lost control in the M6 following a hail storm.
