The Met Office said white flurries and hail are likely to hit on the lower grounds of the northwestern part of Scotland and peaks of the north.

Showers will become generally confined to western areas on Monday morning before it spreads into the south-west during the evening.

Tuesday will be mostly dry with sunny spells in the south and east.

There will be more in the way of cloud elsewhere with showers in the north and west, wintry in nature over high ground.

Meteorologist Jo Farrow at Netweater.tv, said: "A secondary low develops during Monday heading out into the North Sea for the start of Tuesday and this has had some interest.

"Next week really will be quite different; windy, unsettled, rain or hill snow on showers whizzing in from the west."
