Saturday will be cold, with further wintry showers in the east.

Eastern areas around Haverhill, Hadleigh, Sudbury and Bury St Edmunds could see snow in the air but wet conditions could leave ice on the ground rather than snowflakes. Snow will slowly fade away during Friday.

Authorities asked motorists to completely clear their vehicles of snow and Wiltshire and Thames Valley police forces advised drivers to travel only if absolutely necessary.

Gatwick Airport also saw snow flurries, although the airport was advising it was planning on operating as normal, the Mirror reported.

This affects Central, Tayside & Fife, East Midlands, East of England, Grampian, Highlands & Eilean Siar, North East England, Northern Ireland, Orkney & Shetland, SW Scotland, Lothian Borders, Wales and Yorkshire & Humber.

Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces could also occur and the public are urged to take care travelling this weekend, allowing extra time and packing water to stay hydrated.

Lakers Rumors: Lonzo Ball prefers Chicago or NY if traded
Talks are expected to heat up over the next few days as the Lakers attempt to push through a trade for Davis before the deadline. One social media user in particular created a fake Instagram comment left by Lakers star LeBron James on Davis' latest post.

The snow is expected to spread eastwards towards Shoreham where it is expected to snow 9pm until midnight.

The Met Office said there is a 60 per cent chance of a sleet shower at 6pm which will turn into heavy snow by 10pm.

"Into the afternoon those showers will go into the Pennies and the Peak District as well", Ms Smith said.

In Cornwall, snow is as deep as 15cm in the area of Bodmin Moor.

Had it fallen more than 0.2C (0.4F) lower it would have surpassed the low of minus 15.6C (3.92F) set in 2010 - but it was still the coldest temperature recorded since 2012.

A number of North Devon schools have also closed early today with the weather warnign in place.
