The Met Office has issued a yellow ‘be aware’ warning advising of the possibility of snow and ice in Argyll and Bute.

The warning is valid from 5pm today (Tuesday, January 20) until 10am on Wednesday, and covers most of west and central Scotland.

Snow accumulations are expected to be limited to 1-2cm in most areas, with up to 5cm possible on higher ground.

The biggest risk is expected to be posed by icy stretches on untreated road surfaces, forming as cloud breaks develop and temperatures fall as a result, and drivers have been warned to be alert to the possibility of difficult travel conditions.
