The Met Office has this afternoon issued a yellow level warning for snow covering Sunday, saying showers are likely throughout the day, forming in the Thames estuary and then moving westwards.

Parts of Cumbria are included for Friday night into Saturday morning.

"Icy patches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths".

"There is a small chance that snow may fall for a longer period across southern, and particularly south eastern regions for a time on Sunday".

Now, the freezing weather is set to return, as a cold front comes in from Poland and brings snow, ice and high winds to most of the country.

"This band will slowly ease in the early hours of Saturday morning, but with colder air arriving from the east, ice will form on many surfaces".

There is a small chance of stranded vehicles and passengers.

There may be power cuts and while some services, including mobile phones, may be affected.

According to Met Eireann, rain will gradually clear northeastwards tonight to scattered showers and some clear spells in the southwest and west by morning.

However some places could see up to 20cm of snow on high ground.

"Strong easterly winds will lead to some deep drifts of snow". Showers are likely to become more frequent across the southeast into the evening, with narrow bands of up to 5 cm of snow accumulating. "Snow accumulations will be more variable during the day".
