The Met Office has issued a snow and ice warning for Monday and Tuesday as wintry conditions are set to return this week. The yellow weather alert, which is in place from 5pm Monday until 10am Tuesday morning, warns commuters of travel delays and disruptions due to the adverse weather conditions.

Many areas across the UK, except the south of England, are expected to experience snow and freezing rain as temperatures plummet once again.

Monday morning will stay windy, with coastal gales, widespread showers and snow in some parts of northern and central Scotland.

The showers will be concentrated over northern and central parts, forecasters have predicted.

It will be mostly mild cold in the far north, however, the real feel is expected to be chillier due to the bitter wind.

Northern Scotland will see rain and hill snow giving way to ice rain and sleet during the afternoon.

Elsewhere, most places can expect further showers, but southern Scotland, Northern Ireland, western England and Wales will see more persistent rain moving in, with snow on northern hills.

Tuesday will bring sunshine and widespread icy showers.

Forecasters have predicted Tuesday to be cold along with bitter winds.
