After Storm Bella, parts of Britain are covered in beautiful snow – and more is to come


The snow chaos will continue across much of the UK as the Met Office issued further warnings hours after Storm Bella devastated the country with strong winds and heavy rain.

Parts of the UK were already overcast on Sunday after Bella hit regions overnight on Boxing Day, as post-Christmas temperatures in parts of Scotland are expected to drop to -6 ° C on Monday morning.

The Met Office has now issued yellow weather warnings for ice and snow in Scotland, Northern England, Northern Ireland and parts of North Wales.

The warnings took effect on Sunday at 3 p.m. and are expected to remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Monday. Rain, sleet and up to 5 cm of snow fall.
