Winter Storm Emma is combining with the Siberian storm known as the "Beast from the East" to create the most serious winter conditions the United Kingdom has seen for years. A red weather alert - the highest level - has been issued by the Met Office for parts of Devon, Somerset and south Wales, and amber or yellow warnings are in effect for the rest of the country.
Harsh conditions are expected to continue into next week in some areas. Heavy snow is predicted for the entire region, with freezing rain also possible. Due to hazardous road conditions, unnecessary trips should be avoided. Travelers should be prepared for long travel delays and cancellations on bus, rail, and air travel. Check the Met Office for the latest weather information.
