UK Weather: Met Office issues ice alert warning morning commuters of 'tricky travel'

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for ice from Sunday night until Monday morning, "making for tricky travel". The UK’s national meteorological service predicted: "Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, making accidents more likely and journey times longer."

The yellow warning from the Met Office follows the havoc wreaked by Storm Arwen which caused three people to be killed when trees were blown over by strong winds as well as damage to buildings and disrupting transport.

However, Monday is expected to be another chilly day which will create icy roads.

Accuweather Meteorologist Joe Curtis told "Temperatures Monday morning will be below freezing across much of the UK, which can lead to icy patches on untreated roadways and sidewalks after recent rain and snow.

"Britons should prepare to spend a bit of extra time commuting to work Monday morning to account for any icy spots on roads."

However, Mr Curtis revealed temperatures will rise above freezing later in the day, causing any remaining icy patches to melt by the afternoon.

The meteorologist also stated while Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be milder, another surge of chilly air will arrive by Thursday.

A cold weather alert issued by the UK Health Security Agency will remain in place until today after areas in the north of England, Scotland, Wales, the south-west and the Midlands were left without electricity.

Storm Arwen's powerful gales caused transport disruption and damage to buildings, while heavy snow led to lorries getting stuck and ploughs being used in a number of areas.

In the Yorkshire Dales, dozens of people remain trapped at the Tan Hill Inn for the third night after being snowed.

Following a blizzard, snow had drifted so high that a tunnel had to be cut from the front door, but roads remain impassable.

However, the pub's general manager Nicola Townsend, 52, revealed in order to keep spirits up staff had prepared a karaoke evening on Sunday.

She told the Guardian: "They've formed quite a friendship.

"Like a big family is the best way I can describe it.

"One lady actually said 'I don't want to leave.'"
