Get your winter woollies out: snow and ice are going to blast Britain this week as the Met Office issued multiple yellow warnings of snow and icy conditions.

"It will be quite a sunny start to Monday once frost clears and will stay quite bright for most of the morning".

Met Eireann say to expect "icy and slippery conditions due to accumulation of ice and snow on untreated surfaces".

"Once the rain has cleared, some hail, sleet and snow showers will follow from the northwest, with one to three centimetres above 200 metres and some small accumulations expected at lower levels".

Tsitsipas went 1 for 3 in that category, getting his only break in the last game of the third set. Tsitsipas will now face Spain's 22nd seed Roberto Bautista Agut in the quarterfinals.

Overnight temperatures -1 to 1C in the north and 0 to 2C in the south, except 1 to 3C in the southeast.

The outlook for the rest of the week is varied with wintry showers set to continue on Wednesday but relatively warmer weather and patchy rain predicted to see out the week.

"The showers will be of rain, hail, sleet and snow and snow showers most frequent in parts of the west and north of the country", the national forecaster said.

THURSDAY: There is still some uncertainty with regard to Thursday's forecast, but current indications suggest it will be a cold, calm and frosty start with sunny spells. Widespread frost post front, and ice risk. Feeling raw with highest temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees Celsius, in moderate, occasionally gusty northwest breezes. Friday looks set to be fairly decent with only clouds and spells of patchy rain set to arrive. Rather cloudy, with hill fog.
