The Met Office warns that strong gale force Arctic winds will continue to blast northern parts of the United Kingdom as a yellow weather warning remains in place until Wednesday.
Forecasters are warning of a "potentially disruptive period of weather", with Met Eireann Forecasters expecting it to feel "bitterly cold" on Tuesday with a strong to gale force westerly wind feeding in frequent wintry showers.
Snow has also already fallen in parts of northern England and Northern Ireland, with 1cm (0.4in) reported in Lough Fea.
'Some roads and pavements will turn icy, with an increased likelihood of some accidents and injuries'.
A yellow weather warning is still in place for snow and ice through until tomorrow morning.
The Met Office has predicted 5-8cm (2-3in) of snow will fall at low levels on Tuesday, and up to 10-20cm over higher ground. It's possible that power cuts will occur, potentially impacting other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

The yellow warning extends over northern and western England and Wales for Snow and Ice and runs until 11am Weds am.
Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: "Those snow showers will be accompanied by gusty winds, and even blizzards over the hills".
The alert will be in place until Wednesday evening. In addition, some western coasts may be affected by large waves that may throw out ocean debris onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties. This has been extended to Thursday morning at 9am, with a big dump expected overnight on Wednesday.
Met Éireann's warning will remain in place until 03:00 local time on Wednesday.
"There is still significant uncertainty regarding the extent and location of any heavy snowfall, at this stage parts of northern and central Scotland appear most at risk".
