Four inches snow stops flights in UK’s Leeds Bradford AirportIn Britain spring seems far behind as almost four inches of snow delayed flights and motorists  were warned from driving in the adverse weather conditions.

 

 

The Leeds Bradford Airport, West Yorkshire runways were cleared up by plowing the snow, but the airport had to be closed down after northern England was hit by snow showers all night.

 

 

The region of Northern Ireland, north Wales, northern and western England as well as Scotland will be experiencing 3.9ins of snowfall and the Met office has issued weather warnings as cold frontal system continues to make its way in from the Atlantic. Daytime temperature will touch 4C (39.2F) in Leeds and Manchester and 3C (37.4F) in Bradford.

 

There was heavy snowfall in Staffordshire, and Shap, in Cumbria leading to the closure of several roads over the high Pennines in south Yorkshire. More than 50 schools have been closed due to the severe weather conditions.

 

The Met Office yellow warnings cover snow and ice and warn of difficult driving conditions and the likelihood of travel disruption as a result.

 

South and south-east will escape the snowfall experiencing a mostly dry and clear day; those areas are likely to receive rainfall. Strong, north-easterly winds and wintry showers in many places will ensure temperatures remain below normal at least until the middle of next week.

 

The Met Office announced that the winter of 2015/16 had been the warmest in England and Wales for more than a century, according to provisional figures.
