Rain, sleet and snow accompanied by strong winds is expected to move across northern and eastern England during the afternoon and early evening, turning to rain in most areas before clearing.

Accumulations of snow will vary from 0-2 cm slushy deposits below 200 metres, with locally 2-5 cm above 200 metres, and 5-10 cm above 300 metres in Pennine areas during the first part of the afternoon.

Be aware of the potential for some disruption to travel, particularly on higher level routes.

Icy stretches are likely to form on untreated surfaces across Scotland and northern England during Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, with upland areas most prone early in the period following snow and partial thaw. Further wintry showers in the overnight period are likely to increase the ice risk by dawn on Wednesday.

Take extra care and be aware of the risk of ice on untreated surfaces.
