As per the Met Office weather forecast for the UK, additional wintry showers are likely during the course of the week. Nonetheless, for many areas, the weather will be dry with sunny spells.

On Monday morning, the passengers battled iciness, snowiness and acutely frigid windiness. The biting wintry weather reemerged in the UK on Monday morning. Subsequently, Jersey airport closed down on account of snow. On the lanes, there were perilous conditions on several important routes.

Inevitably, drivers experienced crises galore while driving their vehicles as there were robust winds. The collapsed trees created obstacles on snowy roads.

The Sussex police spokesman has urged the motorists to adopt extra carefulness on the roads as they are slimy due to the relentless fall of snow.

There were dangerous driving conditions on the A69 and A6 in Cumbria and on the A54 in Cheshire. The shutting down of Jersey Airport resulted in a number of flights being annulled. Thus, the UK snowfall has inconvenienced the commuters.

Motorists in Wales have had to endure strong winds. One lane of the M48 Severn Bridge was shut down. Roads, in which driving conditions were highly hazardous on Monday morning, included A46 in Nottinghamshire, A353 in Dorset and A14 in Suffolk.
