Forecasters are warning of hazardous driving conditions with disruption to travel in parts.
Yellow weather warnings have been issued for the West Midlands, parts of Eastern England as well as Yorkshire and Humber.
The Met Office say some roads and railways are likely to be affected by the "slow moving" band of rain, sleet and snow with an increased likelihood of traffic collisions.
In their latest warning, they claim: "The area of precipitation currently across this region is expected to be slow moving, with snow falling across higher routes (above 300 m), and potential for heavier bursts to bring temporary lying snow down to around 100 m above sea level.
"Accumulations are not expected to amount to more than a a few centimetres, and will often be transient.
