"Snow accumulations will mostly be confined to ground above 100m away from coasts, but some temporary slushy deposits are possible to low levels at times".

Met Eireann has now issued a status yellow snow and ice weather warning for Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford.

The warning is in place from 6am on Wednesday, December 30, until 12pm on December 30.

Met Office chief meteorologist Paul Gundersen said: "An Atlantic frontal system looks likely to bring a mixture of rain, sleet and snow to parts of southern England and South Wales on Wednesday, but the extent of any snow is very uncertain".

The warning added: "Whilst not all areas will see these where they do fall ice is expected to form".

For children on school holidays the snow was welcomed, as families made the most of the flawless sledging conditions. Heavier snow is predicted for Thursday.

Third lockdown as COVID mutation puts NHS under pressure
One senior government figure said the nation was "doomed" to be locked down until the vaccines are more fully rolled out. And the Financial Times says the move is a U-turn, after Mr Johnson said colleges and schools should now be closed.

A snow-ice warning is in effect for several counties this morning. As this moves further east into colder air there is a chance of this rain turning to snow.

"As well as snow, widespread ice may also be an issue, especially where treatment has been washed off road surfaces".

"We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and would like to apologise to any customers affected".

Britain is braced for more flooding and gale-force winds on Sunday (Dec 27) after Storm Bella lashed the country overnight, tearing down trees and cutting power to homes.

Highways England also warned motorists around snow-hit streets, but the AA reported regional constraints imposed thanks to Covid-19 meant roads had been quieter than normal.
