A spokesperson from the Met Office said: "Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice. The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail at low levels, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate."
