Army called in to clear snow in Scotland

Over two weeks after it first fell, snow is still causing lots of problems for people in Scotland.

Schools in the north are STILL closed and roads are blocked in some areas.

It's so deep in the capital, Edinburgh, that the army have been called in to help clear it, but it isn't as deep in other areas of the UK.

Temperatures are still freezing across the UK, but weather forecasters think it could start to get warmer over the next few days.

It was as cold as -18 degrees last night, but could reach 8 degrees on Friday, which could mean some of the snow and ice will melt.
