Schools reopen after big freeze; Monday rush hour traffic and travel

Snow, ice and wind has caused major disruption across Coventry and Warwickshire over the past few days.

More than 200 schools were forced to close, and some roads became impassable.

But it seems the big thaw is finally underway, meaning schools are starting to re-open from Monday, March 5.

Sunday started off cloudy, foggy and icy, but felt a little less cold with temperatures rising to 5C.

On Monday fog and ice patches will clear during the morning, leading to sunny spells developing at times during the day, though a few showers will also develop, as temperatures hit 9C.

From Tuesday to Thursday it will be milder, although still with the risk of fog, frost and ice overnight.

There will be outbreaks of rain, but with light winds and also some brighter spells.
