The Met Office has issued amber warnings for today, Wednesday and Thursday for snow and low temperatures.

The Met Office has urged those in affected areas to prepare for widespread heavy snow and very strong easterly winds, which will bring "blizzard conditions" and "severe drifting".

As Storm Emma makes its way north, it should start to affect the weather in Yorkshire from Friday morning.

Winds could reach 80km/h with gusts of 110km/h, resulting in blizzard conditions and zero visibility.

Met Éireann weather forecaster Evelyn Cusack has said parts of Ireland could be braced for around a metre of snow as conditions deteriorate rapidly. Heavy snow showers are forecast across Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The second warning, which covers areas like Cardiff, Somerset and parts of Devon, is now in place until the early hours of Friday. "Gale-force winds and super-cooled freezing rain could turn parts of the United Kingdom into an ice rink by the weekend", said Sara Thornton, director of digital weather service Weathertrending.
