Predictions of snowfall through Thursday night were proved correct, although no further snow is forecast.
A Met Office spokesperson said: "“Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and disruption to transport.”
The Dronfield Bypass into Sheffield is closed this morning following a collision.
The crash occurred between Broombank Road and Jordanthorpe Parkway.
Motorists are also being warned to avoid the A57 Snake Pass this morning, which is closed due to snow
Flights were cancelled and delayed for passengers after six inches (15cm) of snow fell at Leeds Bradford Airport overnight, forcing the runway to close for part of Friday.
Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts said: “The remnants of the system that is bringing snow across southern Scotland and England will be lingering into Friday evening, predominantly in the north east of England.
“Mostly it will be rain showers and a wintry mix of snow, sleet and hail for the rest of the country.”
Hail was expected “just about anywhere”, she said, adding: “Later in the day we are most likely to see hail cause trouble on the roads if the ice builds up as conditions become slippery.”
After a cold night on Friday, a keen frost is expected to follow on Saturday morning, although the best conditions of the weekend are expected later on.
By Monday the wet and windy weather is expected to cover much of the eastern half of the country, although brighter conditions will move in from the west.
