Islanders are urged to take care tonight as roads and pavements look set to become icy

Yellow weather warnings for snow and ice have been issued today by the Met Office – and islanders are urged to take care today and tomorrow as ice in particular is expected on the roads overnight.
Today (Thursday, November 23rd) a Yellow Ice warning has been issued from 6pm through to 10am tomorrow morning (Friday, November 24th) to expect some icy patches to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths overnight.
“There is a risk of slippery surfaces and difficult driving conditions,” say the Met Office. “Snow showers are expected, mainly over higher ground, in the north and west of Scotland, with longer journey times possible.”

The weather forecasters estimate that showers this evening and overnight across northern and western Scotland will bring further snowfall with one to two centimetres possible to low levels and two to five centimetres predicted on ground above and around 200m.
