The Met Office has issued a weather warning as snow is set to fall this evening leading to hazardous conditions and travel disruption.
The yellow warning is in place from 5pm this evening and stretches across the North of Scotland and the North East from Edinburgh down to Scarborough with snow and ice predicted.
Snow showers are expected in Scotland and the north-east of England from today and then spread to the south-east of the UK by the end of the week.
Temperatures could dip as low as -8C in the sheltered hills in Scotland and the rest of the country will see frosty weather from Tuesday.
Oli Claydon, a spokesman for the forecaster, said “We could see some snow moving into southeastern parts of the UK towards the end of the week, including Hampshire, however, it may also remain dry.”
It comes as eastern Europe has been hit with strong blizzards and severe snowfall that has already led to the deaths of three people.
