Ice blast could cause phone signal to cut out across UK

LONDON Feb 12: An ice blast could cause phone signal to cut out across the country, with a severe weather warning forecasting snow and storms in the coming days.
 
Mobile reception could be lost across the UK if expected icy winds dry air moisture onto power cables and cause them to break. 
 
Issuing two yellow weather warnings for snow and ice, the Met Office forecast potential power cuts and said mobile phones could be affected. 
 
Conditions are expected to bring travel chaos and this afternoon a car was pictured having careered off an icy road in Scotland when it spun 180 degrees.
