A YELLOW weather warning for ice has been issued by the Met Office.

The warning, which covers an area to the south and west of Inverness, will come into force at 3am on Thursday and remain in place for 10 hours.

Forecasters fear that rain falling on frozen ground could lead to treacherous conditions on local roads.

"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."
