Meteorologist Nicola Maxey said that rain could still fall heavily in some areas, and there was a high chance that it would freeze overnight.

“There is the chance of patchy rain and this could be heavy in places,” she said.

“Because of the cold air, this could fall as snow on higher ground in Scotland and England on Sunday.

“We’re expecting a widespread frost on Sunday night and into Monday, and the unsettled weather will continue into the start of next week.”

The rain is expected to ease off on Monday as cold weather continues.

Rain is expected to continue across the south, before clearing off towards the east this afternoon.

While there are sunny spells on the way this afternoon, there could also be intermittent rainfall and even thunder in some areas.

Later in the day the far north and Northern Ireland can expect rainfalls and wind.

Overnight there will be snow in hilly areas, with strong winds across southern England and Wales. Showers are expected in the north, with frost and ice likely.

Monday is expected to be dry, although the wind will remain. The northwest is set to remain cloudy, while sun is expected in the south.

High winds across the last few days have caused chaos across the country, with two deaths caused by trees being blown into the road.

The winds also made flight conditions challenging, with one British Airways flight failing to land at Heathrow.
