The alert kicked in just before 2pm and is valid until 5pm on Sunday.
A Met Office spokesperson said: “Snow, which has been falling across northern areas, will continue southwards, lasting only an hour or so in any one place.
“Up to 1-2cm may accumulate on some untreated surfaces and more widely on grass.”
There could be ‘tricky travel conditions in places’, they added.
Nine Derbyshire roads remain closed in the north west of the county due to snow and ice.
