North Scotland covered in blanket of snow as temperatures plummet

Motorists battled tricky driving conditions yesterday (Mon) as they struggled with the aftermath of Storm Clodagh.

The north of Scotland was covered in a blanket of snow as temperatures plummeted.

People living in Aviemore in the Highlands woke up to wintry scenes as snow covered the landscape.

Several schools in the north were closed while drivers were warned to take care.

The Met Office removed a weather warning for snow across the country at around midday yesterday (Mon) but a yellow warning remains for today (Tue).

A spokeswoman for the Met Office said: "Today there is risk of ice and snow in all areas of the country apart from Orkney and Shetland.

"There could be 1-2cm of snow in high areas with possibly around 10cm in the high mountains.

"It will warm up as the week goes on as warmer air comes up from the south. That could cause some snowfall on Wednesday though as the cold front from the north meets it.

"The rest of the week will be milder. The storm that hit Scotland at the weekend has moved through now to the south."

Police Scotland's North division warned motorists about road conditions in the north east on Twitter.

They said: "Roads very icy in places this morning. Gritters out but will take time to get round all roads. Take care and slow down."

And police in Lochaber and Skye saw the funny side of the weather, tweeting: "Torvill and Dean would have a field day on the A850 Dunvegan road this morning."
