A fresh set of weather warnings have been issued to almost every region in the UK as the Big Freeze continues to sweep across the country.

As we head towards the end of the week, it's still cold, but a bout of rain and sleet, quickly followed by heavy snow showers could cause problems for commuters.

Yellow warnings for snow and ice are in place across the entirety of Scotland, Northern Ireland, North West England, North East England, Wales, the West Midlands and Yorkshire and Humber.

Northern Ireland and western Scotland could see around 2cm to 5cm of snow on higher levels, with a covering on lower levels. 

Ice has been deemed the "main hazard" across Northern England and Wales at the end of this week.

And when the wintry weather finally desists, there are some wet and windy conditions on the way.

Forecaster Amy Hodgson, of The Weather Channel, said: “Temperatures are well below normal on Wednesday and Thursday as we have higher pressure to the west, dragging in a cold northerly flow across the UK.

“Frontal rain will move in from the Atlantic, falling as snow across higher ground over the weekend. "
