The coldest night of winter so far could be approaching, with a weather warning of ice issued for Powys.

The Met Office has issued the yellow warning from 7pm on Monday evening to 10am on Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are forecast to his as low as minus 10C (14) in some areas of the UK overnight.

Snow is forecast for the highlands of Scotland and high-level areas of northern England, while ice is expected to sweep through northern and central parts of Wales.

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.

"It depends if we have clear skies over snow for long enough.

"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."

He added that a chilly breeze will also add to the wintry climes on Monday and Tuesday, although daytime temperatures will be near the average of around 2C (35.6F) for this time of year.

Luckily, the wintry weather is set to be a "short sharp cold spell" over two days before milder weather moves in on Wednesday.
