It says: “A spell of rain, quickly turning to sleet and snow, will move southeast across the UK on Monday night and Tuesday, gradually weakening across England and Wales.

“Some roads and railways may be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

“As rain, sleet and snow clears Northern Ireland and Scotland overnight Monday, ice may form on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

The BBC says snow will fall in Dundee from 11pm tonight until 8am Tuesday.

This forecast is echoed by the Met Office, which also predicts that the temperature will feel like -5C tomorrow at 9am.
