Motorists and residents are being warned to expect more icy conditions as the cold snap in the north continues.
The Met Office has issued another yellow ‘be aware’ warning covering parts of Grampian, and the Highlands from 4pm today and 11am tomorrow.
The alert states: “Ice will again form on some surfaces from late Wednesday afternoon, which will continue through the night and well into Thursday morning.
“In addition, wintry showers will spread from the west with some accumulations of snow, though mostly restricted to high ground. There will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some slippery surfaces likely. There is also a small chance of travel disruption across parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland.”
The chief forecaster’s assessment adds: “Most of the snow accumulations will occur above 200m where 2-5 cm is likely in places, mainly over higher parts of western Scotland and Northern Ireland where greater amounts are likely at higher elevations. However, 1-2 cm is possible at low levels very locally where heavier showers occur.”
