Arctic air which brought snow showers to Moray earlier this week is set to bring more wintry weather tonight, the Met Office has warned.


The forecaster has issued another yellow warning for snow and ice from midnight – and this will remain in force until 10am tomorrow.

A spokesperson said: "Snow showers will start to affect parts of northern Scotland during Thursday afternoon and evening and will become heavier and more frequent overnight.

"Accumulations of snow will be small and patchy at lower levels, and not as widespread as earlier this week, however the additional hazard of patchy ice is expected form on some surfaces between showers."

The warning area covers Moray and Aberdeenshire.

It also extends over all of Caithness and Sutherland, most of Ross-shire, the Black Isle, Inverness and the Great Glen as far south as Fort Augustus.

The westernmost extent stretches to Lewis and Harris.
