A snow warning is now in place for the northeast during a nine-hour period from 2am to 11am.
The warning covers northeast England, northwest England, SW Scotland, Lothian Borders and Strathclyde.
The Met Office warned: "A band of rain, sleet and snow will become slow-moving across parts of southern Scotland and northern England during Thursday morning.
"3-8 cm of snow is most likely to accumulate above 250 metres, but possibly as low as 100 metres in parts of south-west Scotland."
A second rain warning is in place for Northern Ireland, which will see potentially heavy rain and flooding.
