A new weather warning for snow has been issued for the north and north-east.
Those hoping for some respite from the current wintry chill are set to be disappointed, at least until the Met Office’s latest warning expires at 10am tomorrow.
The new yellow warning covers a very similar area of the country to the one that was in effect from Sunday until this morning, and will come into force at 7pm this evening.
Much of Scotland north of Stonehaven will be affected, though south-west Aberdeenshire and the south-east Highlands – including towns such as Ballater and Aviemore – will not.
Both Orkney and Shetland are covered, with Shetland also currently under a yellow warning for wind which is set to expire at 5pm.
