A cold and increasingly showery northwesterly flow is expected to develop during Wednesday and last through Thursday.
Accumulating snow is likely away from windward coastal districts, especially overnight.
Across Northern England 3-6 cm could accumulate especially over high ground.
Over Scotland and Northern Ireland 5-10 cm is likely even at low levels, with more than 10 cm over high ground.
Strong and gusty winds will likely accompany snow showers, and lead to significantly reduced visibility at times, difficult driving conditions and temporary blizzards over high ground.
An 89-year-old woman has died, after a fire at a house in Dumfries and Galloway.

A Burns Night carnival through the streets of Dumfries attracted at least 10,000 spectators and participants.
The parade was lit by at least 3,000 lanterns and spectators lined the streets and the centre of the town where Burns lived.
The procession, which included 6 large main floats, and 432 specially made costumes from 20 community artists, impressed Government Minister Humza Yousaf.
"I came to Dumfries with high expectations, but I was absolutely blown away by this carnival.
"The creativity of the people of Dumfries is absolutely incredible."
The carnival started at 5pm and was led by a huge lantern made in conjunction with Barnado's Scotland, the Big Burns Supper's partner charity.
Organisers were pleased with the event.
"Tonight was just astonishing - I think Rabbie Burns would have been astounded to see so many people turning out for such a huge celebration of his work, his spirit and of Scottish culture"
