The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice in the south east, including Kent.
The yellow forecast, which means ‘be aware’ has been put in place for later today and tomorrow.
As snow and strong winds are expected in the northern and eastern parts of the country, there is risk of snow, sleet and icy patches in the south.
A Met Office statement said: “Eastern areas will see occasional snow showers on Saturday before more persistent rain, sleet and snow spreads southwards overnight, with potential for two to three centimetres of snow at low levels, and five to 10 centimetres over northern hills where again blizzard conditions are possible.
“Icy patches are likely throughout the warning area.
“The public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to snow and ice.”
