Weather warning over temperatures
Forecasters issued a weather warning after snow hit parts of the UK - but said this was not the beginning of a new big freeze.
Plummeting temperatures will make roads and pavements dangerous with widespread ice in areas affected, meteorologists said.
But Thursday will see a return to clear skies and no further blizzards.
A Met Office spokesman said: "There has been light snowfall across the north of England.
"Temperatures will drop to below freezing - to around minus 2C in Newcastle and about minus 1C in Leeds - but we will not see a return to anything like the kind of lows we experienced last month.
"The main threat will be from the freezing of the snow which will be lying on some road surfaces.
"Freezing snow, ice and frost will be widespread.
"As we go into rush hour tomorrow morning it will remain on surfaces which have not been gritted.
"The weather has caused some disruption across the north of England but there is nowhere that has been particularly badly affected.
"The radar pictures show that most of the snow has already cleared away."
