New Round Of Snow Showers Coming In

28 January 2015, 08:19

A weather warning for Scotland has been issued from more snow.

The Met Office say showers are expected to turn to snow across parts of northern Scotland through the morning, with the risk then transferring to other areas through the rest of the day.

Forecasters said 5-10cm may fall, even at some lower levels, with more than 15cm possible over higher ground.

They said more frequent snow showers may affect parts of southern and central Scotland through the evening peak travel period.

A yellow "be aware'' warning for snow across Scotland was issued from 8am today until midnight and the public was told to prepare for the potential for travel disruption.

The chief forecaster's assessment said: "Commuters and other travellers seem likely to face a variety of winter hazards, especially later on Wednesday and early on Thursday, although it's likely that snowfall in some areas may be more patchy, particularly towards the east.

Road operator Bear Scotland said it has been preparing its winter fleet, with up to 90 vehicles working around the clock.
