Hi, I'm Ricky.

0:00:040:00:05

Coming up on Newsround

on this freezing cold day.

0:00:050:00:10

Who's got snow and who hasn't?

0:00:100:00:16

Just what is this unusual animal

caught on camera? In the UK?

0:00:160:00:26

First up, did you wake up

to snow this morning?

0:00:270:00:30

Well lots of you across the UK did

although maybe not quite so much

0:00:300:00:33

as weather forecasts predicted.

0:00:330:00:36

Up to eight centimetres of the white

stuff felt in Northumberland.

0:00:360:00:41

Now that's got to be

enough for a snowman.

0:00:410:00:43

There was about a centimetre

of the white stuff in parts

0:00:430:00:46

of south east England.

0:00:460:00:47

Temperatures were pretty cold too -

in the Highlands it was as low

0:00:470:00:50

as minus 8.5 degrees

in Northern Ireland,

0:00:500:00:52

south west England and East Anglia

it dropped to minus six!

0:00:520:00:56

Some schools are shut

so check before you set off.

0:00:560:01:01

So did it snow overnight

where you are?

0:01:010:01:02

We want Newsround viewers to send

us their special weather reports -

0:01:020:01:06

get your tablet or phones out,

get filming, and show

0:01:060:01:09

us how it looks.

0:01:090:01:10

Head over to the website to find out

how to send your videos to us.

0:01:100:01:16

Now the Winter Olympics

may have just finished

0:01:160:01:18

but we only have to wait 36 days

until the Commonwealth

0:01:180:01:20

Games in Australia.

0:01:200:01:23

Amongst the big names competing

on the Gold Coast for Team England

0:01:230:01:27

are the Brownlee Brothers,

both hoping for a medal

0:01:270:01:29

in the Triathlon.

0:01:290:01:31

Well, they came into Newsround HQ

for a chat and we decided

0:01:310:01:34

to test their

Commonwealth knowledge.

0:01:340:01:38

Hi, Newsround.

0:01:380:01:39

I'm Alistair Brownlee.

0:01:390:01:40

And I'm Jonny Brownlee.

0:01:400:01:41

And we compete in triathlon.

0:01:410:01:47

I think it's earlier.

0:01:500:01:51

I think it's 1930.

0:01:510:01:52

We'll go for 1930.

0:01:520:01:55

I'd go for 63 for some reason.

0:02:010:02:03

I don't know.

0:02:030:02:05

OK, we'll go for 63.

0:02:050:02:08

Should've gone to the middle.

0:02:080:02:09

Should've listened to me.

0:02:090:02:12

Sailing.

0:02:130:02:14

Is shooting in?

0:02:140:02:17

No, it's not in Birmingham.

0:02:170:02:19

It's just been taken

out of Birmingham.

0:02:190:02:20

So sailing is not in?

0:02:200:02:22

Yeah, sailing.

0:02:220:02:23

Sailing.

0:02:230:02:29

I'm fairly confident

it's not Canada.

0:02:300:02:32

It's Australia or England.

0:02:320:02:36

And I reckon it's probably...

0:02:360:02:37

Australia cos swimming.

0:02:370:02:39

Yeah, but England normally come

top of the medal field.

0:02:390:02:41

Didn't they come top

of the medal field last time?

0:02:410:02:46

We have to go for the home crowd.

0:02:460:02:47

All right, we'll go

for England, yeah.

0:02:470:02:50

No, surely the Queen opens

the Commonwealth Games?

0:02:570:03:00

I'm sure Chris Hoy was there

at the ceremony but doesn't

0:03:000:03:03

the Queen say, "I declare these

Games open?"

0:03:030:03:06

I reckon she does.

0:03:060:03:07

The Queen.

0:03:070:03:09

That would have been embarrassing

to get that one wrong.

0:03:090:03:15

Yeah, we'll go for platform diving.

0:03:150:03:20

We went to watch that

in Glasgow, as well.

0:03:200:03:22

Yeah.

0:03:220:03:25

I don't think South Africa.

0:03:250:03:30

Well, South Africa weren't allowed

to be in any international sport.

0:03:300:03:33

It could have been

pre-apartheid, couldn't it?

0:03:330:03:37

Go South Africa.

0:03:370:03:41

It can't have been in Jamaica.

0:03:410:03:43

It hasn't been in Jamaica.

0:03:430:03:44

Really?

0:03:440:03:49

It's England.

0:03:490:03:50

It's Birmingham, isn't it?

0:03:500:03:55

It was supposed to be South Africa.

0:03:550:03:57

It just got moved.

0:03:570:03:58

Scientists are warning as many

as 70% of the world s King Penguins

0:03:580:04:02

could disappear over the next 80

years or have to move

0:04:020:04:06

from where they live

because of global warming.

0:04:060:04:08

It's thought over a million pairs

could struggle to find food

0:04:080:04:11

for their babies where they usually

breed in the Antarctic.

0:04:110:04:14

Environmental change is now thought

to be happeneing faster

0:04:140:04:16

than the birds are able to adapt.

0:04:160:04:21

Take a look at this rare white stoat

0:04:210:04:24

caught on camera in a garden

in North Yorkshire.

0:04:240:04:27

The tiny mammals are normally

a rusty brown colour

0:04:270:04:30

but they can shed their coats

and replace them with a special

0:04:300:04:33

white one when temperatures

are lower than average.

0:04:330:04:37

Perfect for this week

on the North Yorkshire Moors.

0:04:370:04:43

I'm back in just over half an hour.

0:04:430:04:45

See you then.

0:04:450:04:53

Send us your snow reports.

0:04:530:04:56

Send us your snow reports.

0:04:560:04:57

Bye!
