Met Office yellow weather warnings for snow now last until the end of this week.
Forecasters with the agency imposed a selection of new alerts today, with Britons across the UK braced for two more days of potentially heavy snow.
Parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland could see up to 20cm accumulate on the ground, causing additional chaos ahead of the weekend.
The forecast states: “Snow could develop quite widely across the warning area on Thursday and Friday as a potentially quite deep area of low pressure moves across the UK.
“Parts of Northern Ireland, north Wales and northern England are currently expected to see the worst of the conditions on Thursday, with parts of Scotland and northern England then seeing the heaviest snow on Friday.
“Event totals could bring 5 to 10cm of snow to many locations, even at low elevations, with potentially 15 to 20cm accumulating across the northern portion of the warning area.
“Higher elevations of the North Pennines, Southern Uplands, higher parts of the Central Belt and the southern Highlands may see as much as 30 to 40cm of snow in places.
“In addition, there is potential for strong winds, which may lead to blizzard conditions and drifting of lying snow.”
