Travellers have been told to expect icy conditions across a swathe of the country as a 100-mile wide corridor of snow has seen some Britons waking up to frosty conditions.
There are 12 yellow warnings for snow and ice in place across the South East, London, Birmingham, and into areas such as Liverpool, Leeds and Sheffield, up into the North West and parts of Scotland.
The Met Office said snow had been "expected to fall along a relatively narrow corridor" and forecaster Sophie Yeomans said "that band of sleet and snow is staying over the country, but it is dying out".
Of the band of snow which has moved eastwards across Britain, she said: "In low-lying areas some people might be waking up to 2-4cm of snow and possibly more, 5-10cm, on the higher ground. There could be a dusting for many places."
Swathes of Britain have been blanketed in snow with forecasters warning more is on the way.
Twelve yellow “be aware” alerts for ice have been issued across Scotland, north-west England, the Midlands, southern England and London.
Many families have been playing outside, taking to the slopes of the Brecon Beacon National Park in Wales to toboggan and build snowmen.
There is a fine balance in who will get to see snow through the rest of today and tonight.Read the full story ›

Severe weather warnings have been issued for large parts of the UK as forecasters predict heavy snow in the coming days.
Wintry showers are expected to hit northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning - which means be aware - and called on the public to prepare for disruption to travel.
Forecasters expect 2-5cm of snow to accumulate locally at low levels while higher ground above 150 metres could see in excess of 10cm. Visibility could be significantly reduced at times with strong and gusty winds likely to accompany snow showers.
A statement by the Met Office's chief forecaster read: "An active cold front is expected to push south-east across the UK during Wednesday introducing an increasingly cold and unstable air mass.
"Showers will become frequent and heavy, increasingly falling as snow in the north and west, and driven well inland by strong to gale force north-westerly winds. Accumulating snow is likely, especially overnight."
