Met Office has issued severe yellow warnings for snow and ice from 10pm on Wednesday to midday ThursdaySnow will reach the south east and London by tomorrow with up to four inches predicted for higher groundComes after River Severn burst its banks and communities along the water were thrown into crisis by floods
Storm-battered Britain faces more misery today and tomorrow when snow and ice is forecast to settle across large swathes of the country.
Met Office forecasters are warning of up to four inches of snow from the Shetland Islands down to Nottingham and across to Northern Ireland this evening.
On Thursday the snowfall will be even wider, with severe warnings reaching London, the south east and Wales and lasting until midday.
The first warning will expire at 10am on Thursday when the snow will turn to ice, causing traffic and train chaos across the network. Today high ground in Derbyshire and Wales are already covered in a blanket of white.
It comes after unprecedented rainfall caused flood defences to buckle along the River Severn, with Britain already experiencing 200 per cent of its normal February rainfall, with four more days of the month set to go.
Snow is pictured blanketing fields in Wardlow, Derbyshire today, with the Met Office warning of more to come later today and into Thursday
There is also snow around Pen y Fan mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales, today, ahead of more tonight
