Drivers are being warned to take care on the roads as many people across the UK see their first snow this winter.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning to “be aware” of snow and ice.
A corridor of snow 100 miles (160km) wide is moving from western Scotland, through the English Midlands, to London and south-east England overnight.
BBC Weather’s Jay Wynne said a few centimetres (one inch) of snow were likely on low levels, with up to 10cm possible at higher levels in Scotland.
Parts of rural Scotland may see temperatures drop to -10C (14F) for a second night, he added.

The Met Office says clear skies will allow temperatures to fall widely to below freezing on Saturday evening, making untreated footpaths and cyclepaths turn icy.
There are further warnings of freezing fog for Sunday morning, which is expected to be slow to clear.
