Sky News weather presenter Nazaneen Ghaffar said, “Ice and snow will be the main hazards across the north of the UK for the rest of this week, especially across central and eastern Scotland and northern England on Friday morning where snow could even fall to low levels, but the bulk of accumulations will be across high ground of these areas.
“Some southern parts of the UK on Friday morning may also be at risk of some sleet or snow for a time.
“Mainly it’s for the west of Wales, southwest England and perhaps across areas of East Anglia and the southeast of England – but the risk is low for these areas and will be mostly over high ground.
“The weekend will remain cold, with the risk of any wintry outbreaks over the Scottish mountains.
“There will be spells of rain or showers elsewhere, mainly across coastal areas, although Sunday looks to be dry for many areas with increasing amounts of sunshine.”
