Following Friday's deluge of snow, much of Saturday's snowfall was limited to the North East of England and the east of Scotland.
But on Sunday, a blanket of snow is expected to fall across more of the nation, hitting London and the South East of England first before moving north.
Laura Caldwell of MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said: "There will be a few snow showers but heavier snow moving into the south of England and spreading into the Midlands, north east Wales, East Anglia and central England.
"There will be a quite significant accumulation and it will be seen first in London and the South East before moving north later in the day.
"It is not going to be getting warmer any time soon.”
