Further snow is expected to push into many southern and eastern parts of England, including London, overnight and during the day on Friday.

Falls of between 2 and 5 cm are likely across a swathe of southern and south-eastern Britain, with up to 20 cm possible in higher parts such as the Cotswolds, Chilterns and North Downs.

Heavy snow showers are also likely to continue in the northern half of Scotland. Parts of Wales, Northern Ireland and north-west England could see further wintry showers during the day.

Overnight temperatures are expected to fall well below freezing with widespread ice on untreated roads and pavements for much of the day.

Patches of freezing fog may be an additional hazard in places for those travelling.

Beyond Friday, the outlook remains wintry with further spells of rain, sleet and snow for parts of the UK through the weekend and into next week.
