Yellow warning for Snow issued across Parts of Ayrshire
Snow is likely to bring a brief period of travel disruption to parts of Scotland and Northern England early on Friday.
Areas of snow are expected to develop during Thursday evening and the early hours of Friday.
Snow may briefly settle across areas as low as 150 m above sea level, although later in the night and on Friday morning the snow level will likely rise to 500 m and above from the east as milder air arrives from the east.
Snow will then turn to persistent, and at times heavy, rain at lower levels.
The bulk of snow accumulations will be over hills and mountains. 2-5 cm of snow is possible above 150 m, with transient sleet/snow at lower elevations.
Steadily Increasing amounts are likely at higher levels; perhaps as much as 10-20 cm above 400 m, significantly affecting higher transport routes for a time before it turns to rain.
