Met Office spokesman Nicola Maxey, said Monday would be “a cold day with bright weather for most” and added: “It’s certainly looking fine, dry and cold in the South.”

Venues including outdoor sections of pubs and restaurants, clothes shops, hairdressers and theme parks will be reopening in England on Monday, along with non-essential shops in Wales and outdoor retailers in Northern Ireland.

She added: “By the time we get to Monday, it’s certainly looking fine, dry and cold in the south.

“The further north you go, the colder it is and there’s a risk of showery rain for the west side of Scotland and for Cumbria.

“There’s a chance that some of that rain could fall as snow in the high ground in Scotland.”

She added: “There’s also a chance of frost on Monday and Tuesday morning, following cold nights, with most places likely to see temperatures just touching above freezing.”
