Yellow warning for snow today issued across Ayrshire
A band of rain and snow will affect much of Scotland as it drifts eastwards through the rest of Tuesday. Snow levels will be generally above 200 m bringing 2-5 cm accumulations of fresh snow.
Some wet snow will penetrate to lowest levels in heavier outbreaks bringing temporary slushy deposits, particularly during the late morning and early afternoon around the Glasgow area. Some disruption to transport is expected as well as difficult driving conditions.
Chief Forecaster's assessment
Snow is now falling to lower levels than previously expected over parts of Scotland. Whilst most of the snow will be above 200 m more intense bursts will bring this temporarily to lower levels. This area of precipitation will move gradually eastwards this afternoon and evening whilst weakening. Some snow may persist over high ground of the Grampians overnight but this is not expected to be disruptive at this stage. Icy stretches are also possible as the band clears eastwards this evening.
