Met Office forecasters are predicting further heavy snow will bring the risk of disruption across eastern areas of Britain on Sunday and Monday, with ice continuing to be a hazard in many other parts.
Snow, which will be heavy in places, will move north over central and eastern counties of England during Sunday. The heaviest snowfall is expected over the high ground of northeast England and eastern Scotland overnight and into Monday.
Met Office Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for the ice and snow. An amber warning for heavy snow is in place for parts of northeast England and eastern Scotland where accumulations of up to 25 cm of fresh snow over the hills will drift in the strong easterly winds.
Martin Young, Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: "Many parts will stay icy over the next few days, and there is the continuing risk of some snow at times almost anywhere. The heaviest snow, however, is expected across parts of eastern England and eastern Scotland through Sunday night and Monday, bringing the risk of disruption in some areas."
