Birmingham will face snow on Tuesday – according to agents who have issued yellow weather warnings for the city.
The region is in the middle of a yellow warning for ice, which runs from midnight to midday on Tuesday, January 22.
According to hour-by-hour estimates published by the Met Office, the city faces considerable rainfall at 12 noon.
And the rainfall is expected to give way to heavy rain and snowfall between 1pm and 3pm.
The Met Office warned Birmingham to expect a "cold start" on the second working day of the week.
The estimate added: "Heavy rain will bring rain, hail or snow in time.
"Snow will mainly be on the hill, although there will be some in the lowlands, especially at the beginning and during the night."

Temperatures will fight after a cold start, reaching a height of only 3C.
And tonight the mercury will drop, with the Met Office predicting a low of -3C.
Estimates continue: "Further winter rains tonight will bring more snow to the hills and some to lowland areas.
"Some obvious spells are also possible.
"Frost will form, with ice spots."
The yellow weather warning for ice was released by the agency yesterday and ended at midday.
The Met Office says ice surfaces – roads, sidewalks and cycle paths – can cause injuries from slipping and falling.
There is a risk of travel disruption.
It will be very cold throughout the country this week, and many places will not see daylight above 3C to 6C.
Met Office Meteorologist Sophie Yeomans said: "Most of these countries are in colder and rainier air.
"Snow is mainly in the hills, while for most places it rains due to rain and maybe a little hail.
"We have been warned of ice; the part of the weather that has passed has left rain on the ground, so the air temperature starts to drop the soil temperature will be below zero and that risks the ice in much of the UK.
"So, pay attention to areas where the surface has not been treated.
"On untreated surfaces there is a risk of slipping and falling.
"There is also the risk of some ice surfaces on untreated roads."
Temperatures in London and Cardiff are expected to peak at 5C, while Birmingham will see highs of 3C and 2C in Edinburgh.
British highways warn motorists that snowfall is "quite heavy" on the M62 trans-Pennine route, where efforts are being made to keep the road open using plows and salt.
In M6 snow caused the closing of the southern entrance at the intersection of four overnight, even though the road was reopened in the early hours of the morning.
Meanwhile, a fleet of 32 gritters came out in Scotland southwest where Transerv described his condition as "Baltic".
Some light snow is also seen down in southeast England when the cold front moves from the northwest.
