Parts of Britain are set to be covered in four inches of snow.

Anyone travelling to or from the UK over the weekend are being warned to keep an eye on updates, as flights are expected to be severely delayed or cancelled outright due to extreme weather conditions.


On Friday morning alone, Bristol Airport suspended all flights up to 8am.

At the time of writing, there are two weather warnings in place in the UK, with an Amber Alert for London and the South East of England, and a Yellow Alert for Central, Tayside & Fife, East Midlands, East of England, Grampian
Highlands & Eilean Siar, London & South East England, North East England, Orkney & Shetland, SW Scotland, Lothian Borders, South West England, Wales, West Midlands and Yorkshire & Humber.

According to Sky News, the lowest temperature across the UK was -15.4C (4.3F), which was recorded in Braemar in Aberdeenshire, while the UK Met Office stated that due to even more snow, "there is a good chance that some rural communities could become cut off".

Their latest weather warning reports that "Some delays and cancellations to rail are likely, and perhaps air travel. Power cuts are likely and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected".

Temperatures are set to remain this low - the lowest the UK has seen since 2010 - throughout the entire weekend.

In the meantime, things in Ireland are only slightly better, as temperatures are set to drop to "only" -6 over the weekend.
