Don't go out without telling people, Met Office warns with first cold weather alert of winter
The alert is in place from 6pm on Wednesday until next Monday morning for the entirety of England

The Met Office has warned the public to tell someone where they are going and when they’ll be back as it put in place the first cold weather warning of the winter.

The forecasters have declared a Level 3 Cold Weather Alert in conjunction with the UK Health Security Agency, with temperatures set to reach -6C overnight in parts of the country.

The official advice for a level three alert reads: "If you must go out, dress warmly and wear non-slip shoes. Tell someone where you are going and when you will get back."

The advice from the Met Office and the HSA includes keeping home temperatures at at least 18C, to stay tuned to the weather forecast, and to “keep active, dress warmly, eat warm food and take warm drinks regularly.”

The public are also advised to check on those they know are at risk, keep their phones charged and with them if they leave the house and to alert the emergency services if they are worried about their own or someone else’s health.

"alert the emergency services if they are worried about their own or someone else’s health"... great advice but... hospitals, ambulances, etc, stretched to breaking, police can't investigate most burglaries (unless you're a soccer superstar?)... Ghostbusters?

Four inches of snow could fall in southern England this weekend
UKHSA extends cold weather alert in all regions of England - as Met Office and urges people not to travel

Nearly four inches of snow could fall in southern England within days - potentially causing travel chaos.

The UK will see at least seven days of arctic weather, in which temperatures could plummet to as low as -10C, wintry downpours and "freezing fog".

It comes as two-thirds of councils in England are struggling to find gritter drivers to help keep Britain's roads safe during the cold snap.

UK weather: Heavy rain warnings for three days as snow gives way to downpours

Forecasters have warned of a “potent mix of wintery hazards” in the final week before Christmas, as the icy blast of Arctic air which has covered the UK in ice and snow gives way to warmer temperatures and downpours of up to 150mm.

Weather alerts have been issued across much of the country, with the majority of England’s southernmost counties and parts of south Wales warned of heavy and persistent rain, which will pose a risk of flooding and travel disruption until at least Tuesday morning.

Further north, a more severe amber alert is in force on Sunday, as the Met Office cautions that a period of “freezing rain” and snow will bring a strong chance of power cuts – potentially affecting mobile phone coverage – as well as rail and flight cancellations and delays, and a danger to life due to slips, falls and road collisions.

This warning covers the majority of northern England, excluding the coasts and northeast, stretching from well below Sheffield in the south to Cumbria and parts of Northumberland, lasting until 8pm.

Those parts of northern England escaping the amber alert, however, face a less extreme warning for snow and ice, which extends all the way up to the north coast of Scotland and raises the possibility of falls, power cuts, travel disruption and rural communities becoming cut off.

Power cuts and floods on the way, Met Office warns
Heavy rain expected across most of the UK on Tuesday, with yellow warning for severe weather issued in parts of northwest England and Wales

Heavy rain is expected across most of the country on Tuesday, with a yellow warning for severe weather issued in parts of northwest England and Wales.

The warning is in place from 6am to 8pm and stretches from the Lake District to Derby including Manchester and Liverpool. A second identical warning covers the majority of Wales.

The Met office says that the unsettled weather is likely to continue for the next fortnight “with showers or longer spells of rain for all areas at times.

“Flooding from the River Severn is probable in Shropshire and Worcestershire through to at least Thursday."

UK weather: Manchester Airport closes runways due to heavy snowfall

Manchester Airport was forced to close for hours today after heavy snow blanketed both its runways, leaving thousands of people facing travel disruption.

The airport announced that the heavy snow in Manchester had forced it to close both its runways, with international arrivals diverted.

Dozens of flights were grounded, with disruption likely set to continue through the day even though the runways reopened by 9am.

Temperatures languished below freezing in all parts of the country on Thursday morning as the airport announced the closures, and National Highways said that snow on the nearby M56 motorway was also causing delays of up to 45 minutes – with five miles of heavy congestion.

Weather alerts for snow and ice are currently in force across much of the UK, including in Manchester, with forecasters having warned people to brace for travel disruption.
