A YELLOW weather warning is in place by the Met Office warning of freezing temperatures and snow showers across Scotland and northern England.
Snow is currently falling across the southwest of the country, but is expected to move across to other areas as the day progresses.
The entire country, apart from parts of Orkney and Shetland have been warned to take care due to ice on roads, pavements and cycle paths.
Travellers have also been warned that public transport services may also be affected thanks to heavy snow and ice on bus and train routes.
The heavy snow has affected many rush hour commuters this morning (22 January) as they attempt to make it into work.
