THE weather outside is frightful as Brits once again face icy wintry conditions as snow and freezing temperatures hit the UK. As Britain could be hit with more snow again this winter here is what you need to know about the white stuff... How does snow form?

But two types of white stuff - 'wet' and 'dry' - can either mean perfect snowman-making material or powdery plumes for wanderers caught in the winter wonderland.

A Miami-Dade Police officer is facing a vehicular homicide charge in a March crash that killed another motorist, officials said Wednesday. Officer John Young Song, a three-year veteran of the department, was charged in the March 6 crash that killed 45-year-old Emilio Jesus Vizcaino, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office said in a news release. The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. in a rural area of southwest Miami-Dade at the intersection of Southwest 260th Street and Southwest 147th Avenue. Song was on duty and driving a marked police car at the time, officials said. Homicide investigators determined Song disregarded a stop sign and entered the intersection going 80 miles per hour when he collided with the car Vizcaino was driving. There was no evidence he had his lights or siren on and he wasn't responding to any emergency calls, officials said.
