UPDATED: Snow to continue in Leicestershire into the evening
The Met Office has said Leicestershire can expect between five to 10cm of snow by tomorrow morning.
It has scaled down its warning for the East Midlands from amber to yellow - which means people should be aware of disruptions to travel.
Meteorologists said a band of snow is currently moving over the city and county throughout the day but will die out during the evening.
Cold temperatures overnight could lead to icy stretches of road, the Met Office said.
