More snow forecast for Britain in the next 24 hours
More snow is expected to fall on Britain in the next 24 hours, despite initial reports that the storm was moving away from the island. This will bring another wave of transport chaos and school closures, and some areas will get up to eight inches.
The most snow will fall on Gloucestershire, the Midlands and Wales as schools there have been closed since Monday.
It will also cause havoc for many traveling on roads and could shut down London's tranist system again. This prevented millions of people from getting in to work in central London.
Councillor Paul Bettison, chairman of the Local Government Association Environment Board, said he feared salt supplies were "drying up" due to rationing.
Paul Knightley, assistant forecast manager at MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said the snow could continue until the weekend.
He said: "An area of more persistent and heavier sleet and snow will push northwards. This will then bring moderate to heavy snowfall for the rest of the night for much of south and mid-Wales, the Bristol area, much of the Midlands, and into parts of central southern England."
