Frequent snow showers are expected to continue and cause further disruption in places, with up to 5 to 10cm of snow forecast in northern parts of Scotland and 2 to 5cm elsewhere, plus patches of ice.

There is a low chance of travel delays on roads and delayed or canceled rail and air travel, along with a low chance some rural communities could be cut off, the Met Office has warned.

The warning, first issued on Friday, reads: “A band of rain, sleet and snow is expected to move south on Monday, followed by frequent snow and hail showers. Whilst the highest accumulations of 5-10cm are most likely to be found over northern Scotland, there is a small chance that more organized and sustained snow accumulations will develop elsewhere in this area which could bring 2-5cm even at lower elevations. Showers are expected to continue into Monday night and ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces where snow has melted during the day.”

On Monday morning, the Met Office update said: “The warning has been extended through Wednesday morning to reflect the snow/ice threat, which continues into early Wednesday.” Scotland weather: Met Office extends snow and ice warning
