Snow caused chaos to commuters across Scotland this morning after the Met Office issued a number of warnings.
Forecasters had warned that temperatures would drop to -2 overnight and fears were realised when people woke up to blankets of snow across the central belt.
The worst of the snow was recorded in Inverness-shire, although the Met Office was unable to give an accurate measurement.
The coldest overnight temperature recorded was in Salsburgh, where a low of -0.5 was measured.
Visibility caused disruption on the M74 through Lanarkshire and Glasgow and there were westbound delays at Newhouse in North Lanarkshire due to a jack-knifed lorry.
Major disruption was caused as the A702 was closed in both directions due to “numerous road traffic accidents”.
Yellow warnings for snow and ice had been issued across much of the Highlands and central belt, although large parts of the east coast were unaffected by the extreme conditions.
There is a risk of some snow tomorrow, according to the Met Office, although the worst of it will be heading north with a clear air covering the south and central belt.
A spokesman said there will be some scattered showers throughout the afternoon after a dry morning.
The cold snap is caused by air coming in from the Arctic, with wintry showers and sleet to continue until the weekend across Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Public transport was generally unaffected with Scotrail insisting that all services were running as planned.
While many are surprised by the spring snow, a spokesman for the Met Office said it was not unusual to see the white stuff at this time of year.
He said: “Statistically, it is actually more likely to see snow in March than in December.”
