The Met Office has warned of snow, wintry showers and ice for tomorrow.

It has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning saying up to 2cm could fall in the early hours of Tuesday and drivers should expect disruption.

The Met Office said: “Rain will move northeast across Scotland and North East England on Tuesday morning, falling initially as snow which will accumulate in places. Rain may also fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, which could result in very icy conditions.

“Snow accumulations at low-levels will vary across the warning area, though up to 2cm are possible, with 5cm above 200m and 10cm or more above 500m. Snow will turn to rain again as much milder conditions follow from the southwest by the afternoon.

“The public are advised to be aware that there could be some disruption to travel.”
