Scotlands’ weather: Snow yielding to warm front

Waiting for Video...

Forecasters predicted last night that warmer, drier weather would sweep in, quickly seeing off the remaining dusting of snow in low-lying areas.

Just under three inches of the white stuff fell in western parts early on, giving way to sleet and rain, leading to warnings of disruption from floodwater for commuters later on.

Yesterday’s wet and icy weather was blamed for several accidents which closed roads in the far north, North-east and south of the country. Floodwater caused problems on the A77 and M74 and snow led to delays in and around Dundee and in parts of Dumfries and Galloway.

Forecasters say northern and western areas will have some scattered showers today, the worst in the morning, but it will be milder than average. Temperatures could rise to 9C today in inland areas with mild weather here until the start of next week.
