Scotland is to expect snowfall from this afternoon up until noon on Monday.

The Met Office states there is a small chance some vehicles and passengers could become stranded in higher areas as a result of the snow.

A spokesman said: "Rain and hill snow is expected to arrive from the south-west later on Saturday, the area gradually drifting northwards through Saturday night, Sunday and into Monday.

"In some places this will be accompanied by gales, which will generate blizzard conditions.

"The largest accumulations will be confined to above 400 metres, where 20-30 cm of snow could build up, but more temporary accumulations of 2-5, locally 10 cm are possible down to around 250 metres.

"Some uncertainty remains over precisely where the focus of the heaviest snow will be, and uncertainty also increases in the details of various areas of snow later into the weekend and early next week."
