A forecaster at the Met Office said: “A band of rain, sleet and snow followed by wintry showers will move south across Scotland and Northern Ireland on Sunday evening and into parts of northern England and north Wales early on Monday morning.

“Localised accumulations of 1-3 cm are possible to lower levels but higher accumulations are likely over higher ground. Above 250 metres, accumulations of 5-10 cm are possible.

“Whilst skies are expected to clear from the north overnight, icy patches are likely to develop and persist through to Monday morning.

Snow and ICE is forecast after Storm Bella is set to batter the region with 80 mph winds.

Storm Bella has officially been named as strong winds and heavy rain are forecast from 26 December

After a relativity calm and cold day on Christmas Day, conditions across the UK will turn increasingly unsettled through Saturday 26 December and into the 27 December with strengthening winds and heavy rain moving in from the north.

A Yellow warning for wind for the whole of England and Wales as well as the far south of Scotland has also been issued and will be in force from 15:00 on 26 December to 12:00 on 27 December.
