UK weather: MailOnline readers share their Whiteout Wednesday snaps

Snow-way I’m going out there! Cute bunny shelters from cold in adorable photo – as MailOnline readers share their Whiteout Wednesday snaps

It’s been the first significant snowfall of winter for many parts of Britain.

And MailOnline readers were out in force today taking pictures of the wintry scenes across the country as many parts faced dangerous travel conditions.

Others took pictures of their pets investigating the snow as the country braced for further snowfall over the next two days amid possible -11C (12F) temperatures.

Snowfall brought Manchester and Liverpool airports to a standstill this morning as many schools in the cities closed their doors owing to the harsh conditions.

Gritters worked to clear roads across the North West as commuters were warned over tricky conditions and long delays by Highways England.

The disruption is set to deepen with a weather system arriving from the south west and pushing north tomorrow. The next warnings are in place from 3pm.
