The Met Office said there will be widespread frost as temperatures hit a minimum of -1C.

Some icy patches are expected across the region continuing into the early hours of Tuesday.

The Roads Service is planning to salt the roads network overnight and has called on motorists to stay safe when travelling.

A statement from the service said: "Temperatures are forecast to fall sub-zero this evening and to remain below freezing overnight and through to tomorrow morning.

"There is the risk of ice and frost on roads and salting of roads on the scheduled network is planned this evening where considered necessary.

"Motorists are however advised to exercise caution when travelling, particularly when driving on untreated roads."

A dry start is forecast for Tuesday with temperatures reaching a maximum 10C.
