Residents in the north and north-east woke up to snowy scenes this morning.
The Met Office issued a yellow warning for heavy snow expected to fall “broadly across Scotland” – particularly on high ground in the Highlands, Moray and the north-east from early today.
Emergency services also dealt with several road traffic accidents, including a jack-knifed lorry, in the Highlands this morning.
Another alert was then issued for ice this evening. The yellow “Be aware” alert will be in place from 6pm tonight and 10am tomorrow morning.
The Met Office said: “Expect some icy patches to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday. There is a risk of slippery surfaces and difficult driving conditions. Snow showers are expected, mainly over higher ground in the north and west of Scotland, with longer journey times possible.”
