A Met Office spokesperson said: "Snow is likely to be confined to hills above 100 metres over Northern Ireland, but to low levels elsewhere. Away from coasts, 1-3 cm of snow is possible with up to 5 cm above 200 metres. As skies clear from the west early on Tuesday morning, ice is likely to develop across western Scotland and Northern Ireland."

Public transport may be affected and motorists are being urged to take care.
