Forecasters warn of more snow after temperatures plunged as low as -6C in many parts of the country, from central Scotland through to Cumbria and Buckinghamshire.
Sky News weather producer Jo Wheeler said there would be “significant snowfall” (15cm) in the Scottish mountains and the Pennines later.
She said: “There is also the possibility of seeing between 1cm and 3cm of rain, even at lower levels for parts of the East and North East.”
Edinburgh, the Pennines, the Peak District, County Durham, Yorkshire, Norfolk and East Anglia are all expected to be affected.
The Met Office believes the freezing temperatures will last into next week, possibly followed by more snow.
