Weather blog: Is the cold here to stay?

It's been bitterly cold but will winter continue this way? Laura tells us more in her weather blog.

"It’s been the coldest week of winter so far. Widespread frosts, temperatures down to -13.7C in Highland Scotland, the coldest we’ve had for nearly 2 years. Snowfall across northern areas of the UK causing travel chaos but also scenes of winter wonderlands. Another positive has been fantastic conditions for Scottish ski slopes with thousands flocking to take advantage of the conditions. However it’ll slowly turn milder and more settled over the weekend and into next week.
