Sleet or snow showers during the rest of today and into this evening will leave surfaces wet, and prone to freezing as skies clear and temperatures fall.

Following the clearance of a band of mostly light rain and hill snow, a colder airmass with sleet and snow showers will spread southwards across northeast Britain, reaching northern and eastern Scotland later on Tuesday and northeastern fringes of England by Wednesday morning. Some of the showers will be on the heavy side, with 5-10 cm possible, particularly over hills and higher routes. Icy stretches are also likely, especially on untreated surfaces at lower levels. The public should be aware of possible disruption, particularly to travel early on Wednesday.
