Met Office Issues Yellow Weather Warning – Snow & Ice

Issued today

Valid from: 16:00 Tuesday 4th December 2012

Valid to: 12:00 Wednesday 5th December 2012

Outbreaks of rain and sleet will be clearing southwards on Tuesday night and early Wednesday, leaving surfaces wet and prone to freezing as skies clear and temperatures fall. There is also a chance that precipitation could turn to snow locally, this most likely over hills, where a slight cover is possible locally.

The public should be aware of the potential for increased iciness, especially early on Wednesday, and possible disruption to travel.

A frontal band of cloud and wintry precipitation will slowly drift southwards with cold air following from the north, leading to an ice risk. Timings will be important: the central lowlands of Scotland are perhaps most prone during late Tuesday evening and other areas into Wednesday morning.

The public is advised to take extra care, further information and advice can be found here
