The Met Office say: “Widespread icy patches will develop on untreated surfaces Sunday evening and night.

“Wintry showers will also continue through Sunday evening and night onwards into Monday morning, especially over Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“Snow accumulations will tend to be largely confined to hills and mountains above 200-300 metres where a few cms snow is possible.

“At lower-levels, any accumulations of snow will tend to be quite small and patchy in nature with most areas not seeing any snow settling.

The Met Office has also issued Merseyside a severe weather warning for strong winds through Wednesday.

Winds of over 60 mph are forecast to batter the region which could lead to large waves and power cuts.

The Met Office said: “A spell of strong northwesterly winds across Northern Ireland is expected to extend across much of England and Wales through Wednesday.

“Gusts of up to 50-55 mph are likely inland and 65 mph along western coasts. Winds will gradually ease during the afternoon.”
