Snow: Roads could be affected.

Scotland is set for heavy snow this week with a yellow weather warning issued for most of the country.

The warning is active from 6pm on Wednesday until 4pm on Thursday with roads and railways likely to be affected.

Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen are all among the areas affected.

Much of the north – where temperatures have plunged as low as minus 7.7C – is covered by a weather warning for snow and ice from 3pm on Tuesday until just before midnight on Wednesday.

Temperatures will plummet quickly to below freezing overnight, and could reach minus 10C in the glens, according to the Met Office.

Fresh warnings for snow have been issued for Wednesday, with the “potential to cause rail and road closures, power cuts, and injuries”.

The disruption could hit supermarket delivery drivers, with both Sainsbury’s and Tesco already having to cancel shopping orders as several centimetres of snow settled across parts of the UK.
