The UK is braced for further snow showers today and cold conditions, as temperatures drop to sub-zero levels.
Also, the Met Office has issued an amber weather warning for both heavy snow for areas such as Oxfordshire and north Hampshire.
Britons are therefore being urged to be cautious when travelling, as slippery surfaces may prove hazardous.
Travel on roads and rails could also be affected as a staggering 14 centimetres of snowfall is already laying in parts of the UK.
There is some disruptions to travel and also potentially school closures
Between three and seven centimetres of snow is expected to land in parts of central and southern England this morning.
Meanwhile, up to 10 centimetres of snow is predicted for the higher grounds of south England and south Wales.
Meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas told BBC Breakfast viewers: “With all that laying snow around this morning, of course, there is some disruptions to travel and also potential school closures.”
“We’ve got snow, we’ve got ice and some freezing fog patches to contend with today.”
In addition, there will be further snow showers across the north east of England, the North York Moors and The Midlands.
Also, the frequent snow showers will continue across the highlands of Scotland and the Northern Isles.
