Yellow warning for Snow & Ice issued across Ayrshire from 3PM
Snow and ice causing travel disruption in places.
Valid 3PM today until 00:00 Thursday
A band of sleet and snow will arrive across northwest Scotland on Wednesday afternoon and move southeastwards across most parts of Scotland overnight, clearing southwards on Thursday morning.
1-2 cm snow is likely to settle at low levels quite widely with 3-6 cm above 200 metres and up to 10 cm above 300 metres. Rain is more likely around some coasts, and snow may also turn to rain at low levels inland before clearing to leave a risk of ice on untreated surfaces on Thursday morning.
Following the clearance of the rain, sleet and snow on Thursday morning, much of inland Scotland will be dry for most of the day. However, snow showers will then follow into northern Scotland on Thursday, especially during the afternoon and evening.
A further 2-5 cm is likely at low levels with around 10 cm accumulating above 200 metres. This warning will likely be updated on Thursday.
