A weather warning for snow and ice has been extended across Scotland

Scots braced themselves for more wintry weather this week after forecasters at the Met Office announced two days of yellow warnings across the east of Scotland.

It comes after a weekend of snowy showers across much of the Central Belt and Highlands, with areas including Glen Coe and Stirlingshire truly resembling a winter wonderland on Sunday.

The warning, which was announced on Monday morning, came into force at 6pm on Monday, and is expected to last until 10am on Tuesday.


But now, it has been extended to hit more of Scotland. Initially, it was expected to hit Edinburgh, Fife, Dundee, Aberdeen and the Highlands, as well as much of England.

Now, it has been extended across Glasgow and Ayrshire.

A statement from the Met Office states: "Ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces during Monday night, especially where showers move well inland.

"Some of the showers will be wintry and could produce 2 to 5 cm lying snow above 250 metres, mostly over the Pennines and North York Moors where up to 10 cm is possible.

"Elsewhere, most places will see little or no snow, but a slight covering of a centimetre or so is possible in a few places."
