Snow sweeps across UK while temperatures soar in Southern Spain

Snow hits the UK

WINTER´S FIRM grip has not loosened in the UK with icy and snowy conditions across the North on March 4 whilst in Southern Spain a burst of sunshine hits the coast.

Roads and schools have been closed in the UK and flights delayed after snow fell in parts of the country. There are more wintry conditions forecast.

The north of England bore the brunt of the severe weather with 10cm of snow, mainly on higher ground.

50 schools in Oldham, Greater Manchester have been closed, 28 in West Yorkshire and eight in Leeds.

Leeds Bradford Airport has been busy trying to clear snow from the runway in order to re-open the airport.

Flights re-started at 9am but further delays are expected.

“There are a number of delays which will be cleared by mid-morning,” a spokesman said.

Motorists have been warned to allow extra time for journeys because of dangerous icy conditions.

Weather warnings are in place for Northern Ireland, north Wales, northern and western England and Scotland.

A number of roads have been closed across the Pennines in South Yorkshire. The south has mostly seen mild and clear weather in comparison.

Closer to home, Malaga temperatures have been rising steadily this week with highs of around 25 degrees. Summer seems to be on its way.
