Bitterly cold tonight with icy stretches forming where there is lying snow as lows fall to -6 or -7c out in the countryside, -1/-2c through towns and cities. Add on the wind chill and ... brrrr!

Ice is the big issue overnight. Take extra care on the roads and do not make unnecessary journeys.

We anticipate a widespread frost overnight with the risk of a few more cm of snow this evening, the snow flurries easing through the night, but some heavy bursts over the Peak District by morning.

The Met Office have a yellow "Be Aware" warning for snow in force until midnight, warning of maybe 2 to 3 inches of snow by Sunday morning.

The front giving the flurries is slow moving, but diminishing, so an improving situation into tomorrow. Wintry flurries first thing becoming more isolated as the day wears on. Turning dry but cloudy by the afternoon. Feeling like several degrees below freezing tomorrow with the wind chill.
