A spokesman said: “A widespread frost will develop during Monday evening, then outbreaks of rain, sleet or snow will arrive from the west during the first part of Tuesday.

“Rain or sleet falling onto freezing surfaces will bring a risk of ice, whilst snow will fall briefly to quite low levels, especially across the northeast of Scotland and northern England, but will become confined to high ground through the morning.

Please be aware of the risk of icy surfaces and the potential for some difficult travelling conditions on Tuesday morning, especially on high level routes.”
