The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for snow in parts of northern England and southern and central Scotland.
Sleet showers are likely to occur in Southern England.
"The main risk is rain. We have a number of warnings out at the moment, including a fairly large rain warning covering most of the country. It is going to cause problems for people travelling on Monday. There will be a lot of surface water on roads," the Guardian quoted Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts as saying. (ANI)
