AS TEMPERATURES continue to plummet a weather warning has been issued for Tuesday.

The Met office expects ice to readily form overnight as rain and snow clears.

The warning comes in to force from 3pm today and will run through until 11am on tomorrow.

A spokesman for the Met office said: "Rain and snow will clear southwards later Monday and overnight into Tuesday, with a rapid freeze following.

"Some hilly areas will see a further cover of 1-3 cm snow beforehand.

"Ice will become widespread over northern Scotland from around dusk, much of the rest of Scotland by late evening or the early hours, and across northern England later in the night."

What to expect:

Icy stretches will form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths

Higher likelihood of accidents and injuries due to icy surfaces
