Weather: Snow Returns To Delay Spring Again
Ice warnings are in place for much of the country following several inches of snowfall in some places.
Temperatures nose-dived below freezing and are expected to plunge to between -2C and -9C, further delaying springtime weather for Britain.
Scotland, northern England and East Anglia felt the brunt of the sleet and snow showers, with reports of up to 6cm settling in Norfolk and Suffolk, and 10cm on higher ground.
And forecasters have warned more snow is on its way with heavy showers overnight into Monday.
A band of snow is expected to hit south Devon around midnight, moving eastwards across other coastal counties through to Kent.
There will be further snow showers in the North and North East, but these will ease off as the day goes on.
Sky News meteorologist Chris England said: "We've had some snow through central Britain, which is petering out now, but wintry showers will push in from the North East, mainly affecting eastern Britain and the Central Lowlands.
"Rain in the South West will bring snow to the moors and perhaps to low levels later.
"There's a small chance of more widespread snow for southern counties tomorrow.
"Most places won't see significant falls, but a few places will see shower after shower, with some notable accumulations likely.
"It will stay cold for the next few days, with a significant wind chill and sharp overnight frosts," he added.
