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

The warning comes amid forecasts that up to 10cm of snow may fall on higher ground tonight. Snow may also fall to lower levels.

The warning comes into force at 7pm and will remain in effect until 11am on Monday.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: "Rain moving northwards into Scotland during Sunday evening is likely to be preceded by a short spell of snow over higher ground in southern Scotland before producing a longer spell of snow over regions north of the northern Central Belt.

"Accumulations of 2-5cm are expected above 150 metres, with perhaps around 10cm on ground above 300 to 400 metres.

"On low ground, one or two centimetres could accumulate locally.

"The snow will become lighter and increasingly confined to higher hills during Monday.

"Where rain does not turn to snow there is an additional hazard from rain falling onto sub-zero surfaces to give some icy paches. This is most likely to happen during the first hour or two of rainfall this evening.

"Please be aware of the possibility of localised disruption to travel."
