Flights cancelled as 'mini beast' threatens 10cm of snow in south

Met Office forecast

Highways England's head of road safety Richard Leonard encouraged people to travel only if it is necessary.

A lower yellow alert for snow and ice covers other parts of south and west Wales, with snow showers also pushing into north-east counties during Sunday.

The snow is expected to ease a little by the afternoon though, ahead of a yellow warning for ice on Monday morning.

The Met Office says it could turn heavy and will last for most of the day across the Duchy on Sunday.

"You can do this by checking the Met Office website for the daily forecast or our warnings page, or you could download our weather app which will ensure you can keep up to date while you are out and about".

A yellow weather warning for ice will remain in place for much of the United Kingdom until 10am on Monday morning.

Sunday is also likely to see further snow, especially for parts of the South West, where as much as 25cm could fall on higher ground.

"There is a good chance that some rural communities could become cut off with some disruption to power supplies". Travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel is possible. Wind is expected to gust at around 30mph and will make for an intense wind chill.

'We don't expect it to be Beast from the East Mark II, you could call it a mini Beast from the East, I suppose, as it is a less severe version of it, ' Mr Bowles said.

"A band of snow will move slowly south through Saturday morning, followed by snow showers".

Gatwick Airport tweeted on Saturday night: "Gatwick is now operating a normal service, however the weather is predicted to deteriorate and all passengers are strongly advised to check with their airline for the latest flight information before leaving for the airport".

Snow and ice have already been forecast for this evening, with the initial period lasting from 6pm tonight until midnight.
