Londoners are facing icy conditions this Monday morning, while sub-zero temperatures are expected overnight.

Forecasters are expecting a “bitterly cold” night as temperatures plunge below freezing.

Issuing a yellow warning for ice, which is in place until 10am on Monday, and covers areas including London, Wales and the East of England, the Met Office said: “Icy patches are expected to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths on Sunday night and Monday morning.

“This is likely to lead to some injuries from slips and falls.”

The capital will see a low of minus 1C on Tuesday and a high of 5C, while the day will be generally windy.

Forecaster Rachael Adshead said winds will ease across the south of England and Wales overnight, while at the same time showers will die out across central and eastern parts.

She said: “So what we're left with is a good amount of clear skies and relatively light winds, particularly across southern parts of the UK and that will lead to a cold night.

“We could see temperatures fall down as low as about minus 1C (30.2F) to minus 3C (26.6F) quite widely across the UK tonight.”

Ms Adshead said Monday may feel slightly less cold than Sunday.

There could be some respite, however, with milder temperatures set to return mid-week.
