UK weather: White Christmas sees heavy snow dumped on Britain amid yellow warnings – and there’s more to co… – The Sun

BRITS are bracing for a White Christmas after yellow weather warnings for heavy snow – and there could be more to come.
The Met Office issued a Christmas Day yellow warning for ice on the roads and snow showers for some parts of the country.
The weather service said: "Strengthening west-northwesterly winds will bring increasingly frequent wintry showers to parts of Scotland through Sunday night and into Monday morning.
"These may fall as snow to low levels for a time where temporary accumulations of 1-3 cm are possible, with 5-10 cm of snow over the hills."
The weather warning is in place for most of the Scottish Highlands and some lowland areas from 9pm today to 6pm on Boxing Day.
Affected areas are set to include Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire Moray, Lothian, and Strathclyde, with many Scots now gearing up for a white Christmas.
While much of the UK will have woken up to a mild morning, it is expected to get much colder tonight as the white stuff is set to fall in these areas.
Temperatures could also plummet to 1C overnight on Sunday and there is a risk of power outages, meaning communities might be cut off.
Those commuting are expected to be hit by travel chaos as a result of "some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths."
The Met Office added: "Frequent blustery snow showers are likely to cause some travel disruption to higher routes."
Temperatures reached as low as 1C on Christmas Eve and the Met Office had warned some communities of a risk of power outages.
Meanwhile, torrential rain is also forecast across much of the UK this weekend.
Met Office deputy chief meteorologist David Oliver said: "An unsettled Christmas weekend is on the way for many, with those in the north and west seeing the most frequent and the heaviest showers.
"High winds will affect some coasts through the weekend with gales in places, especially the north and west.
"Christmas Day will be unsettled for many, with the most frequent showers in the northern half of the UK and some more sporadic and mostly lighter showers further south."
