It hasn’t been the best start to February half-term, has it?

We’ve been dogged by frost, freezing overnight temperatures, snow, rain AND fog over the past few days.

And it isn’t about to get any better anytime soon.

Sorry.

A yellow ‘Be Aware’ warning has been issued for parts of Scotland for today (Tuesday) and Wednesday.

There are also flood warnings in place for Scotland and Wales, with 40mm of rain predicted to fall in north west Scotland alone.

Lindsay Mears from the Met Office told The Mirror: “Into Wednesday we are expecting another very cold day with some patchy snow on low levels in central and eastern parts of the UK.

“More cold air will move in, bringing rain, sleet and strong winds, possibly turning to snow over lower levels as far as London.”

The Met Office have also issued a travel warning on their website, which reads: “Please be aware of the possibility of localised disruption to travel, and keep up to date with forecasts and warnings, which may well be updated.”

But it’s not all bad news, everybody.

Yup, the weather isn’t going to be this way for too much longer - phew!

Lindsay explained that, if there is any snowfall, it will be light.

She added that it will slowly clear away during Thursday, which means that we may get to enjoy some outdoorsy activities before half-term is over!
