A Met Office spokesperson said: "Showers on Monday evening, overnight and into Tuesday morning will fall increasingly as snow and hail, with accumulations mainly on hills but locally to lower levels too. Ice is also likely to form on untreated surfaces, whilst lightning may be an additional hazard. This may lead to some transport disruption and difficult driving conditions."
