MET Office weather forecasters have issued a yellow warning for ice in the Highlands tonight.

The warning, which covers an area to the south and west of Inverness, will take effect at 3am and run until 1pm on Thursday.

"A widespread frost is expected across Scotland with most surfaces below freezing," said a spokesman. "Patchy rain will move in overnight and during Thursday morning with a risk of rain falling onto frozen surfaces.

"Ice will readily form on untreated surfaces. Locally some light snowfall is also possible.

"Please be aware of the potential for some difficult driving conditions."
