Heavy snowfall in northern parts of UK – Record-breaking waves on Irish coast
A severe weather warning issued by the Met Office today covered large parts of England and Wales, as well as Northern Ireland and most of Scotland.
With snow coating the ground as far south as Exmoor in Devon, the Met Office said Wales, the Midlands, and even southern areas including London should brace themselves for snowy conditions later this week.
Meanwhile in Scotland, severe weather warnings of heavy snowfall above 200 meters and blizzard conditions were issued yesterday.
The alert follows last Thursday’s storm, which battered the country leaving thousands of homes without power.

Remember when Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, told us that within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”?
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” said Viner.
