A severe weather warning for snow and ice has been extended to the north-east this morning.
Aberdeen escaped most of January’s heavy snow showers as the rest of Scotland shivered in blizzards and sub-zero temperatures.
But February could see those kind of conditions finally hit the north-east as plunging temperatures are forecast for tomorrow.
The Met Office issued a yellow be aware warning yesterday which covered most of the Highlands from 3am until 11pm tonight.
A second warning which now extends into Aberdeen as well as much of Aberdeenshire and Moray has now been issued and comes into effect at 6pm and lasts until 11am tomorrow.
The Met Office’s chief forecaster said: “Temperatures will quickly fall allowing ice to form on untreated surfaces. Frequent blustery showers of rain, sleet, snow and hail are also expected.
“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected by snow with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are also possible.”
