The Met Office said showers of rain, sleet and snow are expected overnight on Sunday continuing into Monday morning.

Forecasters have warned members of the public to be aware of potential travel disruption.

"A colder, westerly, air stream will follow Sunday's frontal band bringing heavy wintry showers and wet surfaces to many areas during Sunday evening," the Met Office said.

"Clear skies between showers are expected to allow temperatures to fall to or just below freezing at times resulting in a risk of icy stretches forming on untreated surfaces."

The Roads Service is salting at-risk areas.

It said: "Wintery showers and icy conditions likely up until midnight. Salting is underway on main roads that are at risk. Road users are advised to exercise caution due to the risk of washoff."

The ice warning is in place from 6pm on Sunday to 10am on Monday.
