Hi everyone, I'm Martin.

0:00:080:00:09

Your top stories coming

up on Newsround...

0:00:090:00:11

We find out what you've been up

to in today's snow...

0:00:110:00:14

The two dogs holding up traffic.

0:00:140:00:15

And a baby monkey

saved by a charity.

0:00:150:00:23

Snow, ice and powerful winds

are continuing to cause big

0:00:270:00:31

problems throughout the UK.

0:00:310:00:33

Let's take a look at

what's been happening.

0:00:330:00:37

Over the past few days,

thousands of schools have been

0:00:370:00:39

closed and many flights

and trains cancelled.

0:00:390:00:43

The freezing cold temperatures

are being caused by two weather

0:00:430:00:46

patterns meeting together,

the Beast From The East

0:00:460:00:48

from Russia and Storm Emma

travelling up from Portugal.

0:00:480:00:53

Up to 50 centimetres of snow

and really strong winds are expected

0:00:530:00:56

in parts of south-west England

and south-east Wales.

0:00:560:01:00

I didn't think it would

snow like this, just

0:01:000:01:02

for the next hour yesterday.

0:01:020:01:05

So I'm pretty surprised.

0:01:050:01:08

I thought it wouldn't snow

as much as this has.

0:01:080:01:13

I thought it was just going to be

a little bit of rain.

0:01:130:01:17

Gusts of 60 to 70 mph

are possible in parts

0:01:170:01:19

of northern England and Wales.

0:01:190:01:22

And more snow is expected in parts

of Northern Ireland,

0:01:220:01:26

Scotland and northern England,

with up to 20 centimetres

0:01:260:01:29

in the hills.

0:01:290:01:32

One school in Surrey

made their own igloo for a classroom

0:01:320:01:35

and had a short lesson outside

in the snow yesterday.

0:01:350:01:38

In Hampshire and Avon and Somerset,

lots of people are only just warming

0:01:380:01:45

up after having to sleep

in their cars

0:01:450:01:46

when they all became stuck.

0:01:460:01:48

In Greater Manchester,

the army was sent out to rescue

0:01:480:01:50

hundreds of drivers whose vehicles

were stranded in the snow.

0:01:500:01:54

Weather forecasters say the cold

weather could last into next week.

0:01:540:01:58

In certain parts of the country,

police are telling people not to

0:01:580:02:01

travel unless absolutely necessary.

0:02:010:02:06

Now over to America,

where police in Arizona

0:02:060:02:09

got called out to deal

with a pretty unusual situation -

0:02:090:02:12

a canine car chase!

0:02:120:02:15

You're gonna wanna watch this one.

0:02:150:02:17

Running down a motorway is never

a good idea, but unfortunately,

0:02:170:02:20

these two dogs did just that.

0:02:200:02:25

State troopers and firefighters

tried for over an hour to catch

0:02:250:02:28

them, causing huge traffic jams.

0:02:280:02:31

Whoops!

0:02:310:02:33

Eventually, one of them

was picked up off the road

0:02:330:02:36

and when the second one legged it

into a caravan park,

0:02:360:02:39

some of the locals

were able to rescue it.

0:02:390:02:41

Thankfully, no dogs or people

were hurt during the chase.

0:02:410:02:44

Officials are now trying to find out

if anyone owns the dogs.

0:02:440:02:50

Take a look at this baby

monkey in central Africa.

0:02:500:02:55

He was saved by a charity,

who've found him a new home.

0:02:550:03:00

Meet baby Moussa.

0:03:000:03:03

He's been taken to his

new home at a sanctuary

0:03:030:03:05

in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

0:03:050:03:09

He was taken from the wild by

poachers, but rescued by a charity.

0:03:090:03:14

He quickly made friends

with the pilot and seemed

0:03:140:03:16

to enjoy the view.

0:03:160:03:22

But it's all got a bit tiring

and he's had to have a wee nap.

0:03:220:03:28

And look - he seems pleased to meet

the people who will keep him

0:03:280:03:31

safe at the sanctuary.

0:03:310:03:35

Reckon it's been cold here?

0:03:350:03:37

Well, check out this

place in northern Canada.

0:03:370:03:39

But the freezing temperatures don't

stop this girl spending hours

0:03:390:03:41

sledging with her dogs.

0:03:410:03:45

Eight dogs, one sled,

one 12-year-old, -40 degrees.

0:03:450:03:52

In the north of Canada,

it's very cold and very snowy.

0:03:520:03:56

Perfect weather for a sleigh ride.

0:03:560:04:01

Every day after school,

Florence takes her sleigh dogs out

0:04:010:04:04

in the snow to train.

0:04:040:04:10

TRANSLATION: I need to put

little shoes on the dogs.

0:04:100:04:12

The snow can be very cold and sharp.

0:04:120:04:15

With the shoes, they

won't hurt themselves.

0:04:150:04:21

Florence loves racing so much

that she often travels to the US

0:04:210:04:24

to take part in competitions there.

0:04:240:04:27

TRANSLATION: I like standing

on the sled, exploring new areas

0:04:270:04:31

and meeting other sled dog racers

so I can learn from them.

0:04:310:04:36

Some of the races last several days.

0:04:360:04:39

Florence and her doggy team

are so good that they

0:04:390:04:42

often beat the adults.

0:04:420:04:49

That's all from me.

0:04:490:04:50

Have a great weekend -

I'm hoping it warms up a bit!

0:04:500:04:53

See ya.
