The Met Office has said that snow and ice is expected across most of England, Wales and Northern Ireland on Monday night.
A yellow weather warning has been put in place for London, Thames Valley, East Anglia, parts of the Midlands and South Wales from 9pm this evening until Tuesday at 10am, and this applies to Northern Ireland.
The Met Office have put in place a yellow weather warning which is currently in place in most of Northern and Eastern Scotland and North East of England.
The temperature will fall below freezing on Monday night and will last until Wednesday and up to 30cm of snow could fall in parts of Scotland and other areas could see between 10 and 20cm of snow.
Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said the mercury will fall to 2C in London and 1C in Manchester and in other parts of England even colder conditions are set to hit this week.
Madge said, “Temperatures will be much, much colder than we would expect at this time of year.
“The pattern will set in for some time. We have got this feed of cold air coming in from a much higher latitude.
“We expect these conditions to remain in place until at least next weekend and possibly longer because sometimes these conditions can be quite stubborn and not easily subject to change.”
Madge said, “This is a disruptive spell of weather which could have quite serious consequences for some.
“Listen to the forecast, take account of weather warnings and expect to see some potentially disruptive conditions wherever you are.”
