Full list of school closures as snow and ice warnings hit UK today – are you affected? | The Sun

SCHOOLS up and down the country are closing classrooms today as Britain is swamped by snow and ice warnings.

It's seen the Met Office issue a number of yellow weather warnings for snow and ice across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The mercury fell well below zero last night as snow and ice blasted the nation during a cold snap.

And Met Office meteorologist Tom Morgan said the cold weather is set to hang around into next week.

He said: “This is a cold spell lasting around five to seven days so I think by the weekend if you’re living in Scotland or Northern Ireland, you will feel it getting a bit milder – but it will remain cold in England and Wales.

“It may well take until the early part of next week for temperatures to return to normal across England and Wales.”

Dozens of schools have already announced they will be closed today.

While others confirmed they will have later starts.


The Met Office have warned Cornwall that snow showers and icy stretches may cause some disruption.

Commuters are likely to be affected on the road as well as on the bus and train.
