The warnings could lead to possible travel delays on roads stranding some vehicles and passengers with possible delays or cancellations to rail and air travel.

Commenting on the yellow snow warning, a Met Office spokesperson said: “A band of rain will turn to snow across Northern England and Scotland through Tuesday.
"2-5 cm is expected to accumulate quite widely across the area, but locally this could reach 10 cm, particularly in parts of the Southern Uplands and Highlands.
"Strong southeasterly winds will also lead to snow drifting in places, particularly over the highest routes, adding to poor visibilities.”
