With the first heavy snowfall of the season forecast for parts of the country this weekend, the Met Office warns people to prepare for possible travel disruption on one of the busiest weekends in the lead-up to Christmas.
The Great British weather presents different challenges in different seasons. It's not just winter weather which can wreak havoc on the roads - even rain at any time of the year can be dangerous - in fact 9 out of 10 weather-related deaths and serious injuries on the roads take place in the rain. From high winds, strong sunlight and fog to snow and ice, all weathers can present different challenges both for keeping the travel networks open and for those navigating through the difficult conditions.
