The south coast will not get snow, but is set to be drenched in heavy rain instead.

The Met Office has steered clear of any definite predictions of snow for now, but said that weather in Scotland would be "wintry" on Monday.

They said in their forecast for Monday: "Dry and bright start in the north and east.

"Cloudier and breezier in the west with spells of rain pushing northeastwards, turning heavy at times and wintry in Scotland."

Looking ahead to the period from Tuesday-Thursday, the Met Office said: "Low pressure is likely to dominate through this period, bringing heavy showers and longer spells of rain throughout. Temperatures around average for the time of year."
