Many parts of the region woke up to a covering of snow this morning as a weak weather feature energised overnight, depositing 4cm of snow in places.
A Met Office Yellow warning remains in place until 3pm.
The 'feature' is expected to lose energy over the next few hours which means the showers should ease during Saturday afternoon and become lighter and more scattered.
It will remain cold and cloudy with a light but bitter northeast wind, especially at the coast.
The risk of ice continues into Saturday night.
