Many inland areas across Ayrshire including Kilmarnock, Cumnock, Patna & Dalmellington have been hardest hit this morning with delays across many inland roads as the snow continues to fall.


Coastal areas have also got a taste of the snow this morning with reports of Ayr, Monkton & Girvan also seeing some snow.


A yellow warning for Snow remains valid across Ayrshire until 2PM this afternoon:

Ice likely to form across parts of Scotland, north Wales and north England leading to some travel disruption along with snow for some parts.


Showers of rain, sleet and snow will move south across parts of Scotland, north Wales and north England through Wednesday evening and into Thursday. Whilst not all areas will see these where they do fall ice is expected to form.


The showers are also likely to fall as snow at times, mainly above 200 m but to some lower levels, particularly on Thursday morning over southern Scotland. Some accumulations of 1-3 cm are likely, again mainly over higher ground, but 5 cm or more is possible over parts of southern Scotland.
