A live snow tracker is mapping the locations where the white stuff has already started falling.

But the website shows some areas have been hit with a fresh dusting already, as the extreme weather sweeps the nation.


It sources the locations of tweets using the hashtag #uksnow to map the incoming blizzards as they happen.

Snow is falling in Scotland already, and those in the north east are also enjoying showers of the white stuff.

The Met Office warned there is a “high risk” of four inches of snow falling from around midday.

Elsewhere up to eight inches is expected, sparking fresh warning of travel chaos when people try to head home from work.
