Commuters are being warned of potential travel disruption this morning with snow and ice expected for the region.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning as wintry conditions hit parts of Aberdeenshire, Moray, Highlands and the islands.
In an online statement, a spokesman said: “Showers will turn increasingly to rain at low levels during the early hours of Monday allowing icy patches to form.
“On hills and mountains, showers will remain as snow.
“A few centimetres of snow are possible on hills above 200 metres, and perhaps over the Shetland mainland for a time this evening.
“Northern Grampian will be dry for most of the night but a few showers are likely here late in the night.”
The warning is in place until 11am today.
What to expect
- Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
- Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths
- Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services
