Snow, rain, frost and sunny intervals are “all on the cards” for Tuesday, according to the Met Office. Wintry showers were set to grip parts of the nation on Tuesday, as the forecaster issued yellow weather warnings for snow across north-western parts of Scotland as well as south-west Scotland and north-west England. The Met Office added that there was a possibility of “snow showers, with a small risk of thunder” on Tuesday afternoon for parts of northern England and Northern Ireland. This would mainly affect areas above 100-200m before turning to rain as milder weather spreads across the UK. “This change to milder conditions will be preceded by some snow over parts of northern England and Scotland later on Wednesday, mainly over higher ground.

A few weeks back The Fixture urged a degree of caution regarding Scotland's chances of lifting a first Triple Crown in 33 years prior to yesterday's misadventures at Murrayfield. At Murrayfield on Saturday, there was more of the same grunt from Scotland as they went toe to toe with Ireland in the first half. Inside five minutes around the hour mark, Ireland simply went up through the gears and took the match away from Scotland. And, yet, it all felt a bit impotent from Scotland in that second half. Next, though, comes Italy at Murrayfield on Saturday in a match that Scotland must win if they are to post a positive record for a Six Nations tournament that promised so much but delivered plenty more of the same.

Yorkers from Jordan and Curran, who conceded just four singles in an excellent final over, were also supremely effective. Salt was stumped for a golden duck having resumed his opening partnership with Malan, who was given lbw after Taskin Ahmed thudded into his pads. Bangladesh did not seem overly perturbed and Malan capitalised with a slog-sweep off Bangladesh debutant Tanvir Islam for six. Buttler timed Taskin and Shakib to the boundary as he and Malan settled into a rhythm. Moeen holed out to deep midwicket while Duckett lost his off-stump when Taskin went full and straight.

President Joe Biden and the leaders of Australia and the United Kingdom on Monday announced that Australia will purchase nuclear-powered attack submarines from the U.S. to modernize its fleet amid growing concern about China’s influence in the Indo-Pacific. The partnership, announced in 2021, enables Australia to access nuclear-powered submarines, which are stealthier and more capable than conventionally powered vessels, as a counterweight to China's military buildup. Two submarines, the USS Missouri and the USS Charlotte, were tied up at the next pier in the Pacific Ocean behind the leaders. Australian officials have pushed back against the criticism, arguing that they are working to acquire nuclear-powered, not nuclear-armed, submarines. The president's daughter Ashley Biden and granddaughter Natalie Biden also traveled with him to San Diego.

And when it seemed that the love between Leo and Gigi was dead, they were spotted “getting close” at a party last month. And over the weekend, they got close again at a pre-Oscars party and hung out at an Oscars after-party too. According to People’s sources, something is still going on between Leo and Gigi, or they’re just friends. I’m sure that Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, is already calling up all of the major fashion houses to tell them to start sketching her daughter’s bridal looks. I’m sure that Yolanda is really doing that, and I’m also sure that she texted Gigi, “Try to just eat a sliver of an almond for lunch today.

Tin is the metal upon which the British mining industry was founded. These days, though, tin doesn't often show up on the radars of those with an interest in investing in mining. Revival: Many Cornish people have become enthused by the apparent ongoing renaissance in tin, one of their most traditional of industriesThe European and Australian mining companies do have some tin operations, but there are very few pure-play tin companies around. Broker SP Angel has been recommending Cornish Metals (13.3p) to investors in recent market updates, as the company continues in its efforts to revitalise the tin mining industry here. Which is why the few, already-established names like Andrada, Cornish Metals and Cornish Tin will be the go-to destinations for seasoned investors.

Yellow warnings for snow and ice across are also in place for across Scotland. Residents will have to deal with rain, sleet and snow followed by ice which is likely to have some impact on travel, according to the forecasters. The Met Office said that snow and ice across “much of Scotland” on Monday morning and that “outbreaks” of rain and strong winds are set for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. “Between the showers, partially melted snow is likely to freeze on untreated surfaces leading to icy stretches. “Wintry showers will continue through Tuesday, although by mid-morning the temperature on most roads will likely have risen sufficiently to reduce the risk of further accumulating snow or ice.”

“I am very disappointed with that second half,” he said. “The first half was a very good Test match – a very good Test match that went end to end. We managed to stop Ireland scoring a couple of times in the first half and a couple of times they stopped us. “It is just disappointing that the second half was not as competitive or the same energy level from us and Ireland got ahead. Both of them will get scans or X-rays to see if it’s anything that will rule them out next week.”

Ireland's James Lowe in action. Photo / APThe Irish are one win away from a Grand Slam in the Six Nations. By outlasting Scotland 22-7 at Murrayfield, Ireland earned a fourth straight victory of the championship to move on to 19 points — four more than defending champion France. The French are the only team capable of stopping Andy Farrell’s relentless squad from claiming a first Six Nations title since 2018. Five minutes later, Hansen also played a key role in Ireland’s third try by sending in replacement Jack Conan along the right touchline.
