Icy temperatures, fog and snow have been forecasted across large parts of the UK, with the bone-chilling weather expected into next week
The Met Office predicted lows of -3c in parts of the south and south-west England overnight, with snow hitting mountain tops in Wales, Scotland and the far north.
Sunday is off to a chilly start with "freezing fog" that may be "slow to clear" in some southern areas, and rain in the north-west.
Overnight, frost and fog can be expected, with scattered showers in the north-west of England.
The precarious conditions will continue into Monday with heavy rain turning into snow in some northern and central parts of Scotland.
A snow warning has also been issued for the Orkney and Shetland isles in place from 6am on Sunday until 9am on Monday.
Yellow weather warnings for ice and rain are also in place until 6pm this evening for much of Scotland and the far north.
The Met's warnings read: "Heavy rain and melting snow may bring some flooding and travel disruption.
"Icy stretches may lead to some difficult driving conditions.
"Heavy snow may lead to transport disruption."
A yellow warning is the least severe weather warnings but means there is likely to be some impact on day-to-day life.
The chilly weather, which has produced some of lowest temperatures this winter, isn’t expected to warm up until Wednesday with highs of 10C.
Any lingering heavy rain will also turn drier by Thursday, but the threat of some snow on the northern hills will remain.

Brits have also been told to prep for heavy rain which could create dangerous driving conditions if they're not careful.
Ben Aldous, of the RAC, yesterday warned people to "adjust their driving style" or risk "falling foul" to icy weather conditions.
He said: "Fog, ice and in some places snow are the enemies of drivers.
"In order to avoid falling foul of the conditions, it's important for motorists to adjust their driving style to suit the conditions.
"Being gentler on the throttle and brakes, and slowing down particularly on rural or un-gritted routes can help ensure a safe and trouble-free journey."
