Good morning, guys.

0:00:110:00:17

It's Saturday morning, I'm Naz

and you're watching Newsround.

0:00:170:00:19

First up, medal news for Team GB.

0:00:190:00:21

And overnight there was a bronze

for Great Britain -

0:00:210:00:23

making this our most successful

Winter games ever!

0:00:230:00:25

making this our most

successful Winter Games ever!

0:00:250:00:27

Take a look.

0:00:270:00:28

The second to last day

of the Winter Olympics

0:00:280:00:30

and Billy Morgan was the hero.

0:00:300:00:32

It was a chance for the big jumpers

to show off their skills

0:00:320:00:35

on their snowboards in the Big Air

event in South Korea.

0:00:350:00:37

A huge 49 metre ramp stands in front

of Billy and medal glory.

0:00:370:00:43

Complicated tricks and a nice clean

landing are what's needed

0:00:430:00:46

to impress the judges.

0:00:460:00:47

He'd only just qualified

for the final - but on his

0:00:470:00:49

second jump, he did this.

0:00:490:00:57

COMMENTATOR:

He holds it up. Yes. It

was huge and put the nose clap on

0:00:570:01:02

it, the hardest grab. Yes, Billy.

0:01:020:01:04

That left one last

chance to secure a spot

0:01:040:01:07

in the medal positions.

0:01:070:01:10

Morgan, yes. Billie Morgan with the

double grab fun site triple. That is

0:01:100:01:17

massive, is huge. -- frontside.

Medal position and a long, nervous

0:01:170:01:28

wait.

0:01:280:01:28

Canada's Max Parrow

was his biggest threat

0:01:280:01:30

for the bronze medal.

0:01:300:01:31

But he had a bit of a nightmare

and crashed out on his final jump.

0:01:310:01:35

So Billy did it!

0:01:350:01:39

An injury last year meant he almost

missed out on the Games.

0:01:390:01:42

But lots of hard work meant that

instead, he helped Team GB come home

0:01:420:01:45

with a fifth medal to make

it their best performance

0:01:450:01:48

at a Winter Olympics ever.

0:01:480:01:51

Get your hats and gloves

on and get wrapped up!

0:01:520:01:55

Why?

0:01:550:01:56

Well, the Beast from

the East is on its way!

0:01:560:01:58

What am I talking about?

0:01:580:01:59

Well, take a look at this...

0:01:590:02:04

The gritters are getting

ready as Britain braces

0:02:040:02:10

itself for a big freeze.

0:02:100:02:11

What weather forecasters

are calling the

0:02:110:02:12

Beast from the East is sweeping

in from Siberia in Russia.

0:02:120:02:15

Basically, there's lots of cold air

hanging around there -

0:02:150:02:17

and easterly winds are blowing it

all over to the UK.

0:02:170:02:20

Weather experts have issued

a cold weather alert

0:02:200:02:22

for the whole of the country.

0:02:220:02:26

It's a level three warning,

which means there's a 99% chance

0:02:260:02:29

of icy conditions or snow

between now and Thursday.

0:02:290:02:32

It's certainly not the first snow

we'll have this winter -

0:02:320:02:40

But it could feel chillier because

of the wind.

0:02:440:02:50

Next week, it's supposed to be

the official start of spring -

0:02:500:02:53

but it looks like that's

going to be delayed.

0:02:530:02:55

Don't put away those hats

and gloves just yet!

0:02:550:02:57

That's it from me.
