“This one will bring a spell of rain to all, with snow over the hills in the north.
“The strongest winds will be to the south of it, so stay tuned for updates as the forecasts firm up over the next 24 hours.
“Beyond that, colder air will be pulled south on a northwesterly wind behind the low with plenty of showers packing in.
“They’ll turn wintry from the north from later on Monday, the cold air will then stay through into Wednesday, with some sleet and snow even possible in the south for a time.”
