Scotland’s weather: Yellow weather warning extended with roads and railways likely to be affected

Monday started cold and bright across most of Scotland, but forecasters have put a yellow weather in place.

Two yellow weather warnings across eastern Scotland and the island of Ireland for snow and ice will remain in force until 11am on Monday.

It means icy patches on untreated roads and pavements are expected, with journeys by road and rail likely to be affected.

Snow and ice are forecast for much of the north, north-east, west and north-west of the country throughout today and into the early part of the morning.

Martin Bowles, Met Office meteorologist, said: “The biggest hazard over the next couple of days is going to be ice because we're getting these snow showers which will all freeze overnight.

“Obviously roads tend to be quite well gritted, especially main roads, but I would warn people to be careful on pavements, minor roads that don't get gritted or city roads.”
