Even Scotland's lower regions are expected to get a covering of snow on Monday with traffic disruption predicted for the morning commute as the new working week begins with more stormy weather.

Further south, a fresh severe flood warning meaning an imminent danger to life has been issued for the River Severn in Shrewsbury, as the Environment Agency warned of ongoing flooding dangers across England.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for snow across all but the most northern areas of Scotland and Aberdeen from 3am on Monday. Higher ground is expected to see significant accumulations but commuters in the Central Belt have been warned to take care.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: "It could be a pretty tricky commute first thing tomorrow for a lot of people.

"It's certainly turning more wintry."
