It is set to be another week of snowy conditions in Scotland as forecasters have issued three further weather warnings across the country.

People in parts of the Highlands and the Western Isles will be hit with bouts of snow and ice from this afternoon to midnight on Wednesday.

And those living in parts of Glasgow, the Lothians, Scottish Borders and Grampian will join the wintery forecast on Wednesday, with the Met Office issuing a yellow warning for snow from 6pm until Thursday at 2pm.

Forecasters predict roads will likely be affected with longer journey times, as icy patches could appear on untreated roads in the north.

They say snow could be found on higher ground, but some "temporary slushy deposits" are possible at low levels.

It comes after several days of wintry weather across Scotland, with much of central and eastern Scotland waking up to snow on Tuesday morning.


A statement from the Met Office reads: "Northerly winds will bring further showers of rain, sleet and snow across the north of Northern Ireland as well as northern and western Scotland.

"Snow accumulations will be generally confined to ground above 100m away from coasts, but some temporary slushy deposits are possible to low levels at times in any heavier showers. 1-3cm is likely to accumulate above 100m, and as much as 5-10cm above 250m, this mostly across high ground of Scotland.

"Ice will form readily as temperatures quickly fall away rapidly through both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings."
