The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice for parts of Scotland for Wednesday night.

The weather forecaster has said that wintry showers will become frequent and occasionally heavy during the early hours of Thursday morning. 

This will lead to a risk of ice on untreated surfaces or where salt treatment has been washed off by rain.

We can also expect snow to fall inland lying as much as a few cm in places, especially above 150 metres.

Showers will ease from the south later in the warning period, the Met Office has said.

The yellow warning is in place from 11 pm on Wednesday evening until 10 am on Thursday morning.
