Experts have predicted the icy and snowy conditions will begin at 6pm tonight and end at 10am tomorrow morning.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “Ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces during Monday night, especially where showers move well inland.

"Some of the showers will be wintry and could produce 2 to 5 cm lying snow above 250 metres, mostly over the Pennines and North York Moors where up to 10 cm is possible. “Elsewhere, most places will see little or no snow, but a slight covering of a centimetre or so is possible in a few places.”

Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are expected with some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The news comes after several yellow weather warnings of snow and ice affected large parts of Scotland last night and this morning and some parts of the country saw heavy snowfall over the weekend.
