Chief Forecaster's assessment

Temperatures are likely to fall rapidly below freezing later on Monday across much of the area. This will lead to icy stretches, particularly where snow melt has occurred during the day, or where a mix of rain and snow has fallen across the south of the area.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Showers, falling as a messy mix of rain, sleet and snow, will push into northern and eastern parts of the UK on Monday afternoon and last through much of the night. These will lead to icy stretches forming as surface temperatures rapidly fall below freezing from early Monday evening. Some small further snow accumulations are also possible in places. The showers will gradually die out from the north overnight, but will likely persist for much of the period in parts of southeast England.
