"Accumulating snow will target Northern Ireland and Scotland on Monday night before shifting into Northern England and Wales by Tuesday morning".

And there are warnings that Britain could face cold weather until March.

There were several accidents recorded over the weekend that resulted from bad conditions on the road, so be sure to slow down when the weather turns rough.

Britain is bracing itself for 'one of the coldest weeks of this winter' with snow and ice expected across the United Kingdom, along with temperatures as low as -7C in some areas.

North Devon could see some snow this week as the Met Office places the region under a yellow alert for snow and ice.

On Tuesday sleet, snow and hail showers will create icy stretches overnight.

It's set to be wintry overnight. "So many people will see some snow but don't expect to build a snowman".

A severe weather warning is in place for Kent for the next few days.

Nearly every part of the United Kingdom is expected to be coated in snow at some point in the next ten days.

Once again, Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow low temperature warning for the entire country as temperatures are expected to plunge tonight.

One lasts until tomorrow morning.

The Met Office says there will be some roads or railways that will be affected to the point where delays will be inevitable. Some icy patches are likely to develop on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths'.

Snow and sleet are expected to sweep the eastern half of the country on Monday as temperatures fall to -5 degrees over the next 24 hours.

"Once it clears later in the night, we will see freezing behind it".
