A very cold northerly airflow will become established across the UK through Sunday night and Monday morning. Very strong north to northwest winds will spread hail and snow showers inland across many areas, but the most frequent showers will affect northern Scotland.

Here, 2-5cm may accumulate at low levels away from north-facing coasts, with 5-10cm above 150m, and 15cm possible on highest ground above 300m.

The strong winds will cause drifting of lying snow, and blizzard conditions at times on higher ground.
