The Met Office has issued a further yellow warning of snow for Tuesday in Scotland.

The report states that heavy wintry showers will continue to affect most parts of the country today.

While they will turn more to sleet or even rain at lower levels, they will remain as snow on high ground.

Above around 250m another 1-3cm is likely, though tending to melt between showers, while on ground above 400m, another 5-8cm may accumulate.

Some temporary slushy accumulations are possible to low levels in the heaviest of the showers which will be accompanied by hail.

The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and the possibility of some localised minor disruption.

Conditions at lower levels will generally be improving due to the strengthening March sunshine

The assessment from the chief forecaster said: “A strong cold west to southwesterly airstream is continuing to bring frequent wintry showers to much of Scotland.

“While conditions at lower levels will generally be improving due to the strengthening March sunshine and slightly less cold air spreading in from the west, on higher ground these showers will still be heavy enough for snow to settle on the roads.

“A separate warning will cover the risk of ice which will become the main emphasis over a wider area of the UK this evening and tonight.”
