Snow weather road

Police Scotland continues to urge caution if travelling, as yellow warnings remain in place across much of the country. 

While conditions are improving, temperatures are expected to drop overnight and wintery conditions will continue into next week. Yellow warnings for ice in the west and more snow mainly across the East of the country, remain in place, so high levels of disruption can be expected.

Superintendent Stevie Dolan, Police Scotland, said: "Conditions are continuing to improve but we are urging caution, if you are thinking about travelling.

"This wintery weather is set to continue for some time and although the trunk roads are clear, many smaller roads remain impassable. People need to be aware that conditions can change very quickly. We are expecting more snow showers, ice in some areas and drifting snow remains a significant risk.

"Our advice is only travel if your journey is absolutely necessary. Plan ahead and check websites for the latest travel information. Consider using buses or trains, many lines and routes are up and running again. If you are taking your car, then check it over before starting your journey.

"Top up your washers, make sure your tyres are at the right pressure, check your lights and wipers. Check our website for more advice on winter driving."
