Drivers are being warned of being stranded in parts of the UK as Arctic air will bring snow and ice and people are being urged to keep to the main roads and “avoid country lanes.”

National Highways has warned that snow will affect the north west and drivers who live in rural areas have been told to that they could be cut off temporarily.

From 3am on Monday until 9am Tuesday there is a sever weather alert in place for snow and ice across Northern Ireland.

In parts of north east Wales and north west England from Liverpool to the Midlands there is another weather warning in place until 11am on Monday.

From midnight on Wednesday until midnight on Thursday across Northern Ireland, parts of northern England and Wales and northern and western Scotland there is a snow warning in place.

In parts East Anglia the Met Office has issued a warning for snow and ice from 7am on Monday until midnight.

Eslick said, “Especially towards the North where we do have these warnings, we’re likely to see some travel disruption.

“So we would recommend people stick to the main roads and avoid country lanes where possible.

“These are the places that aren’t going to see any gritting or any road clearances for the next couple of days.

“So we recommend people take their time, make sure they have time to do their cars in the mornings, and go steady.”

He added, “So essentially we’re looking at a strong northerly wind which is bringing in Arctic airmass which is cold, which is bringing in these wintry showers.”
