"Strong winds are also expected, with the potential for temporary blizzard conditions and drifting of lying snow, particularly over high ground".

A Met Office yellow "be aware" snow and ice warning is in effect from 04:00 GMT on Tuesday until 11:00 on Wednesday.

"The forecast for today is it's likely to become a bit more wintry, so we could be seeing snow for many areas, with northern and western areas seeing frequent showers", Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said on Tuesday.

Transport Scotland has warned drivers that road conditions are likely to become hard, with the possibility of bridge restrictions. On Monday night and through Tuesday in Scotland and Northern Ireland we have issued a weather warning of possible hail and snow, with up to four inches possible above 200 metres.

It covers much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

People are being advised not to travel if possible during the snowy weather, drive carefully and responsibly, and to take care while travelling to look out for black ice or ice caused by compacted snow.

Severe weather is set to sweep across the United Kingdom tonight, bringing strong winds, hail, and snow over the next four days, forecasters say.

Tonight will see widespread showers continue, with heavy rainfall and the risk of hail or thunder especially in the west and north.

At low levels throughout the warning area, 5-10 cm will be more typical.

The forecaster anticipates further weather warnings will be issued on Wednesday night.

Heavy rain will push eastwards turning to snow over higher ground.

From the early hours of tomorrow, the region is expected to be hit with wintry showers of sleet and snow.

"There may also be an impact on other modes of transport, so if you're planning to travel by rail, ferry or plane, you should check ahead with the operator to find out if the weather conditions have affected your service".

The public are also being warned about the dangers of flying debris, and damage to buildings.

"Large waves are expected to affect some western coasts with beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties".
