A band of heavy rain will spread eastwards during Tuesday morning, quickly turning to snow on high level routes above 300 metres and to lower levels for a time before it clears.
Accumulations of 5-10 cm of snow are likely above 300 metres, much of this falling in a short period.
At lower levels, amounts will be much more variable with a few cm possible in some places while others will just see sleet and rain.
