Snow warning for drivers in Kent

"This warning has been updated to remove much of Scotland (apart from the southeast) and parts of Northern Ireland, whilst it has been extended to cover remaining parts of eastern England and the extreme southwest", a statement on the Met website read.

Some bus services have been cancelled or delayed in Leeds, see the full list here.In Sheffield, drivers have been warned to only travel if strictly necessary.More snow could hit Yorkshire on Sunday, after heavy snow began on Saturday and continued overnight.

The cold weather has returned with more snow falling across parts of the United Kingdom overnight as the so-called "mini Beast from the East" arrived.

"This increases the risk of accidents, as well as injuries due to falls".

However the scarves, hats and gloves were out again in full force as the United Kingdom woke up to freezing conditions on Saturday and Sunday - with the North East getting another FOOT of snow.

The online snow tracker uses crowd-sourcing to create an up-to-the-minute map of exactly where it is snow in the United Kingdom at any given moment.

"Across some southwestern parts the snow will continue throughout the day".

And Meteo Radar also hosts a real-time snow radar for England and the United Kingdom, show where the blizzard will hit and what time.

Strong and bitterly cold winds, with sunny intervals and further snow showers.

A yellow alert for wind in Wales warns of gusts of up to 70mph.

This will only get worse overnight as London plunges into sub-zero temperatures.

He added: "It's worth remembering that cold temperatures - indoors and outdoors, can affect health, particularly in young children, older people and those with heart and lung conditions".

Be sure to check first if you're on the train today.

Mark Wilson, a Met Office meteorologist, said: "It's going to be a very, very cold start, with a widespread frost and ice around as well".

Temperatures are set to plummet with parts of London and the South dropping as low as minus 1C tonight.

"Even at lower levels we could see 5-10cm or even 10-15cm", said Mr Burkhill.

Meteorologist Martin Bowles called this weekend's weather a "mini Beast from the East", as it will be less severe than the storm that battered the United Kingdom a few weeks back.

Snowfall has also been causing disruption across parts of Ireland, with a status orange snow-ice warning extended to 6pm for seven counties, including Dublin.
