It says "Ice is expected to form overnight leading to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.

"Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice.

"The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail at low levels, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate."
