Heavy snow has fallen across much of the UK causing hundreds of schools to close on Friday.
The winter weather has meant 1,700 schools have broken up for the Christmas holidays a day early.
The Met Office, which records and watches the weather, said the heaviest snow was in north-east and south-east England.
In some areas as much as 20cm of the white stuff is expected to fall, with strong winds causing snow drifts.
So far, 125 schools have been closed because of the weather in Cambridgeshire. More than 350 schools are also shut in Hertfordshire in south-east England.
Hertfordshire: Over 350 schools
South Lincolnshire: 8 schools
Northamptonshire: 65 schools
The heaviest snowfall overnight was in Norfolk, Bedford and Buckinghamshire although there was also snow in parts of Wales and Scotland.
The snow has caused big traffic jams and several accidents on the motorways.
More wintry weather is predicted over the weekend particularly across the north of the UK.
But the Met Office said it was too early to say whether there would be a white Christmas.
