The Met Office warns that frequent and heavy hail and snow showers are likely to affect many parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Monday evening.

England and Wales will not escape the severe weather, with a yellow warning for snow and ice in place from 4 a.m. on Tuesday until late on Wednesday.

The weather alert warns of "heavy, squally showers" that will turn to "sleet, hail, and snow" over the north of the United Kingdom, with over 10 cm of heavy snow expected to fall over higher ground in Scotland.

People are also urged to be wary of icy roads and pavements, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.

There's no specific plans to change that, with Mercedes not committing to a time frame for any pure-electric or hybrid variant. Mercedes has yet to announce the luggage capacity but it is expected to surpass the outgoing model's 699 litres.

The Met Office is warning that weather across the United Kingdom is about "to take quite a dramatic turn".

The warnings, which cover Central Scotland, Tayside, Fife, southern Scotland, Lothian and Borders, Strathclyde and Northern Ireland, are valid from 3pm on Tuesday until 8am on Wednesday.

We have brisk westerly winds blowing in all these sleet, hail and snow showers.

Pochettino: Kane will break all Premier League and England records
When you have these sorts of players in fine form, as a striker myself, it is just about getting in the right place at the right time.

Snowfalls of up to 20cms (nearly eight inches) can be expected on higher ground in the north of the United Kingdom, with deposits of up to 8cms likely in more populated areas. This could see 3-8 cm of snow accumulate in places with up to 20 cm over high ground.

Showers are expected to continue into the night with wintry falls on Wednesday, especially across the north.

More rain is expected tonight as showers from western Scotland are set to shift south-eastwards across the rest of the United Kingdom, which will be hit by blustery showers and strong winds.

"There may also be an impact on other modes of transport, so if you're planning to travel by rail, ferry or plane, you should check ahead with the operator to find out if the weather conditions have affected your service". In addition, some western coasts may be affected by large waves that may throw out ocean debris onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

He spent the next two seasons as Louis van Gaal's assistant but left after Jose Mourinho was appointed manager at Old Trafford. Ryan Giggs has accepted an offer to coach the Wales men's national team, calling it "an opportunity I couldn't turn down".

"The rain will be accompanied by strengthening southwesterly winds which will increase to gale force along western coasts".
