Sprinkling of snow for Midland beauty spot.
Temperatures were expected to struggle to climb above freezing and could dip to minus five, with a significant wind chill factor making the Midlands bitterly cold.
Nights were forecast to be very cold with widespread frosts and the mercury plunging well below zero.
And further heavy snow has been forecast for tomorrow.
Forecaster Sarah Holland, of the Met Office, said: "There are two systems - one a milder front bringing raIn and another much colder system from the east. Wherever these clash there will be snow. We have already seen a change in temperatures and this cold snap is likely to continue for several days with more snow possible on Monday."
Birmingham City Council said it was planning to grit 750 miles of its main highways with teams on 24-hour standby during the adverse weather.
