The Met Office has issued a yellow 'be aware' warning for snow and ice for Sunday, with rain likely to fall on frozen ground.
Forecasters said temperatures would drop to below freezing overnight on Saturday and wintry showers are forecast from around 9am on Sunday morning, when temperatures are only expected to be around 1°C.
The Met Office said: "An area of snow is likely to move eastwards across parts of Scotland and northern England on Sunday. The snow is more likely to affect higher routes with lower levels only affected more locally.
"In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night. Some roads and railways are likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
