A Met Office yellow warning for snow and ice has been issued for Central, Tayside and Fife, Grampian, the Highlands, the Western Isles, the Northern Isles, Strathclyde, the Borders and south-west Scotland.

The Atlantic Storm looks set to bring Northwest winds of 55 to 65km/h with gusts of over 110km/h, predominantly in coastal areas. Gusts of 60-70 miles per hour are expected quite widely, with gusts to 80 miles per hour possible over high ground and around exposed coasts.

The counties now covered by the warning are Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry, but that may be broadened as the weather system nears our coast.
