A nationwide status yellow snow-ice warning has been issued for the rest of this week. Temperatures fell as low as -7C (19F) in the Highlands overnight, while temperatures in the capital were about freezing.

Many London councils have been preparing for the conditions with Tower Hamlets stocking up on one and a half thousand tons of grit.

The Met Office said, "Showers will turn increasingly to snow on higher ground then to lower levels later in the night and on Tuesday morning".

Ice and snow expected across south and west Scotland later tonight and Tuesday morning.

There will be some light snow showers tomorrow too, but it is expected to dry up by the afternoon.

Over the coming days, Met Eireann says temperatures could fall as low as minus three degrees, with some accumulations of snow expected in areas.

Vehicles could get stranded and trains and planes could face delays and cancellations, the Met Office has warned.

Poor sleep increases risk of Alzheimer's disease
We already know that amyloid and tau can accumulate in the brain for 10 to 20 years before Alzheimer's symptoms begin. Some studies suggest that the prevalence of dementia might be higher among Hispanics than non-Hispanic whites.

It comes into effect from noon tomorrow and is due to last until 11am on Wednesday.

A band of rain will move in from the Atlantic on Tuesday, which will collide with icy air over the United Kingdom and result in flurries of snow.

Motorists are facing hard driving conditions as snow and sleet fall in parts of the country.

The Met Office has told residents to expect longer journey times by rail and road and ice on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

"Further snow showers overnight, mainly affecting western hills, with mostly sunny skies across remaining areas".

"There is a chance of 2-5cm of snow for some places, timings are now uncertain". Drivers should therefore exercise extra caution while this is in force.
