Overnight temperatures will range from minus 10C (14F) in sheltered areas of Scotland, to between minus 1C (30.2F) and minus 2C (28.4F) in Cornwall and Dorset.

The Met Office said the ice warnings would likely cause disruption for motorists and cyclists and warned pedestrians to watch out for slippery surfaces.

Meteorologist Simon Partridge said: “There’s potential that we could see the coldest night of winter so far on Monday night going into Tuesday morning.

“This leads to cold temperatures, and we’ll certainly have two cold days.

“Sleet and snow showers are forecast for Monday, which will bring icy patches to low ground and snow to higher ground.”
