The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning as hail and ice is expected to hit parts of the UK with heavy snow on hillier areas of Scotland and northern England.
The Met Office are advising people to plan ahead for travel disruption and the yellow warning will remain in place until mid-morning on Thursday.
Freezing cold weather has closed in on the UK which could bring ice and hail across part of Britain.
The Met Office said, “Further wintry showers overnight Wednesday and early Thursday may lead to fairly widespread icy patches, particularly on untreated surfaces.
“Some accumulations of snow are also possible, particularly across eastern Scotland and hillier areas of northeast England.
“1-2 cm accumulations are possible mainly above 100 m, with 5 cm over parts of Scotland, Northumberland and the North York Moors above 200-300 m.”
