It might have been a mild end to the weekend with temperatures even reaching 12C in the UK, but the mercury is set to plummet again on Monday (March 13).

Lashings of sleet and rain are expected in many regions, along with icy conditions, as large parts of the UK have been issued with another yellow weather warning which, in turn, means further travel chaos.

The new warning will come into force at 5pm on Monday (March 13) and heavy downpours are expected to batter Britain from then until the late hours of Tuesday morning (March 14).

Warnings, meanwhile, have been issued to pedestrians and cyclists who venture out on pavements, roads that have not been gritted and cycle routes.

Train, bus and car commuters, too, have been told to expect delays to their journeys on the road or by rail.
