Flights from Leeds/Bradford and Newcastle airports were facing disruption today due to adverse weather conditions, although Leeds/Bradford confirmed it was open this morning.

A message on its website said: “Wintry weather/snow showers are forecast so please allow extra time for your journey and check the status of your flight with your airline or tour operator before travelling to the airport. You can also check the latest flight information by clicking onto our arrivals and departures page.”

Passengers were advised to contact their airlines as the Met Office issued an amber “be prepared” warning for snow disruption in northeast England, Yorkshire and Humber, and the East Midlands.

The heaviest overnight snowfall was 3cm in Nottingham and across the Pennines.

Parts of Scotland, which already experienced snow on Sunday, can expect to see more today.

Temperatures are expected to drop to around -10°C across rural Scotland tonight and possibly as low as -4°C or -5°C across other parts of northern and eastern England, the BBC reported.

There was also snow late on Sunday in northeast England, eastern England and Kent.

One of the last places to see snow was London, where it began falling after 5am.

Northern and eastern regions of England are expected to have the highest snow accumulations, the Met Office warned. There could be as much as 10cm in some parts of eastern England, with more on higher ground.

Wales and southeast England are also expected to see some snow during Monday, with the far southwest of England and Northern Ireland being the only regions untouched by the severe cold.

BBC forecaster Steve Cleaton said there could be some travel disruption for those in eastern parts later:

“I think particularly around Nottingham. It looks like it’s going to be more of a problem this afternoon and into this evening,” he said.
