Yellow Warning of Ice
Issued: 1150 on Fri 06 Dec 2013

Ice will readily form on untreated surfaces from dusk on Friday. In addition snow showers will continue across the Northern Isles. A band of mainly light and patchy snow will also push in from the west during Friday evening. It will slowly turn to rain at most levels overnight as milder air pushes in from the Atlantic, but a short period of rain falling onto frozen surfaces is possible adding to the ice risk. Locally 1 to 2 cm of snow is expected, perhaps 5 cm over some of the higher routes. The public should be aware of difficult driving conditions with potential disruption to travel.
