VIDEO: More snow on the way – but you can still buy Valentine's bouquet
FORECASTERS are warning that more snow is on the way – as well as dangerous icy conditions.
A Severe Weather Action status – one below an emergency – has been put in place by the Met Office, which is warning of freezing conditions.
A spokeswoman for the organisation said temperatures had been expected to dip to -2C last night – meaning hazardous driving conditions this morning.
She said: "It will remain dry throughout today with cloud breaking up towards the end of the afternoon and some spells of sunshine."
Overnight into Wednesday it will remain cold and where snow remains the temperature could drop significantly, although it will still remain dry.
But then more snow could be on the way.
The spokeswoman said: "Into the afternoon on Wednesday a weather system will come in from the west which will bring with it snow. There may be two to six centimetres over higher ground in the Peak District.
"However the snow will then turn to rain."
Derbyshire County Council has confirmed that gritting lorries will be out in force on roads around the county and residents have been warned to take care as pavements could become treacherous.
Yesterday services across in Derbyshire were affected by snow that fell throughout Sunday night and into the morning. Public transport and council work was disrupted by the bad weather.
Derby City Council's Streetpride service was due to start a clear-up yesterday morning in Moss Street and Harrison Street, in the Abbey ward, prompted by the Derby Telegraph's Clean Up Derby campaign and the authority's own Take Pride in Your Street drive. A rescheduled date has not yet been issued.
A Derby City Council spokeswoman said the scheme had been cancelled due to the "weather conditions".
Meanwhile Trent Barton had trouble on its Sixes service with the 6.1 unable to serve Middleton because of the snow, and the estate roads in Wirksworth were also impassable.
However county romantics will be breathing a sign of relief after positive news from flower growers in Holland, where a lot of blooms for bouquets are grown.
The bad weather had led to fears that deliveries ahead of Valentine's Day would be disrupted, though this now looks unlikely.
Flora Holland, near Amsterdam, will ship 32 million flowers and plants in trucks bound for the UK.
