Icy stretches are expected to develop across the Isle of Wight and parts of southern UK during the early hours of Monday.
As you can see from the Met Office Snow Map, in some areas this will be the result of snow having fallen or partially melted during Sunday.
However a frontal system arriving from the west may bring further rain, sleet or snow on Monday and this may lead to icy stretches on a more widespread scale.
In addition further outbreaks of sleet or snow may extend east across southern areas although there remains considerable uncertainty regarding the extent of this.
The wintry conditions will continue through the rest of the week as the battle between the cold air over the UK and mild air trying to push in from the Atlantic continues. Sharp night frosts and temperatures not rising much above freezing by day mean it will stay icy in many areas, although the risk of snow does reduce for a couple of days in the middle of the week.
As there is still some uncertainty about the weather, public service information will be posted from the Isle of Wight Council on the links below:
Met Office Severe Weather Warnings have been issued for the ice and snow.
Met Office forecasters are predicting further heavy snow will bring the risk of disruption across eastern areas of Britain on Sunday and Monday, with ice continuing to be a hazard in many other parts.
Snow, which will be heavy in places, will move north over central and eastern counties of England during Sunday. The heaviest snowfall is expected over the high ground of northeast England and eastern Scotland overnight and into Monday.
Martin Young, Met Office Chief Forecaster, said: “Many parts will stay icy over the next few days, and there is the continuing risk of some snow at times almost anywhere. The heaviest snow, however, is expected across parts of eastern England and eastern Scotland through Sunday night and Monday, bringing the risk of disruption in some areas.
“Everyone should keep up to date with the latest weather information and plan ahead for possible travel delays and disruption to transport during this spell of wintry weather.”
By thinking ahead we can all be better prepared for severe weather.
