Met Office warning for snow and ice

The Met Office has issued a warning for snow and ice for the next three days.

The yellow alert is valid from 6pm today (Monday) until noon on Wednesday and follows a separate warning of strong winds which was made this morning, with gusts of up to 60mph expected.

Snow is expected to fall as well and the public should be aware of the risk of disruption to transport.

The Met Office’s chief forecaster said that the North-east can expect “frequent showers to fall as sleet or snow in many parts”.

Snow paid a fleeting visit to the Kincardine and Mearns area on Saturday, but didn’t lie for long.
