The Met Office has said there will be a brief respite in most parts of the UK this weekend before the cold weather returns early next week.
Storm Larisa has moved across a swathe of England which brought significant snowfall, which is now moving away to northern Europe.
By late Friday the clear skies will bring more wintry hazards with sub-zero temperatures for many across the UK.
Jason Kelly, the Met Office Chief Forecaster said, “The worst of the snowfall in England is over for now, but further weather warnings will be in force to cover the further hazards brought by frost and ice.”
He added, “During the early hours of Saturday a weather front will bring warmer air in from the South West to extend across most parts of the UK during Sunday.
“As we have seen over the last few days, the influence of this warm and moist air from the South West will bump into the cold air bringing a risk of further snowfall on the leading edge for a time.
“However, it will also bring heavy rainfall for many as it moves across the UK.
“This could bring transient snow for an hour or two to areas like Northern Ireland and North Wales before extending into the higher elevations of northern England and Scotland.”
