Parts of the UK have seen a flurry of snow as Britain prepares for a "bitterly cold" weekend.
Snow started to fall as far south as Eastbourne in East Sussex, with Beachy Head seeing a light dusting this morning. Parts of Kent, including Tunbridge Wells, and Essex have also seen snowfall.
Snow is largely unexpected for tonight, but there is an ice risk for Sunday morning as a result of the night's frosty conditions. The Met Office said Sunday will be another cold but sunny day and added that there will be further showers on the coastal areas throughout the day.
"It will still be cold tomorrow but perhaps not as cold as it feels today because the winds will be just that little bit lighter."
"There will be a return of milder air from the Atlantic next week, which will cut off this weekend's Arctic chill but will bring showers across the country."
