Brace yourselves for snow

There is a chill in the air after an arctic plunge of air swept the country. Showers could spread across the country, temperatures have dropped creating frost - and temperatures of -3 or -4 degrees can be expected in some places.

With the wet conditions settling on cold surfaces it is likely to be icy. Rain, sleet and snow in the Midlands and northern areas of Scotland as well. However, expect to see gorgeous sunshine through the day.
