Leicester Mercury weatherman Dave Mutton said the snow should fade away northwards tonight.
He said: "Today we will have between two and three centimetres of snow. "Temperatures will struggle to go above 0C (32F) during the day and will be as low as -4C (25F) at night in both the city and county."
Dave said snow flurries will continue tomorrow and on Tuesday, with heavier snow expected to move into the county, having crossed from France to the UK, on Thursday.
