Widespread frost is expected to form overnight and into Tuesday morning, according to a warning from the Met Office.Advertisement
The cold weather will begin on Monday evening with rain and sleet on Tuesday morning likely to turn to ice.
There is also a chance of snow but this should remain on high ground and not be on the level witnessed last week.
The Met Office chief forecaster said: “An occluding frontal system will move east across the UK during Tuesday morning bringing a mixture of rain, sleet or snow.
“This will fall onto sub zero surfaces for a time to give a risk of ice.
“Snow will mainly affect higher ground above 150 metres, with accumulations of 1 to 3 cm in places, but falling to low levels for a time in the northeast of Scotland and over parts of northern England.
“Snow will become confined to the hills through the morning before clearing eastwards.”
The warning is in place from 3am until 9am.
