SNOW showers could hit parts of the Borders after a weather warning was issued.

The Met Office’s yellow alert covers the period from 4pm today (February 9) to 11am on Thursday.

Peebles and Lauder are among the Borders areas issued with the warning, but snow is not expected in the south and east of the region.

On the warning – which is likely to cause “some travel disruption” – a Met Office spokesperson said: “Showers will fall as snow to quite low levels on Wednesday evening and night. Accumulations of 2-5cm are possible above 200 metres elevation, with perhaps around 10cm on some of the highest routes above 400 metres.

“At lower levels some slight slushy falls are possible, as well as a risk of icy surfaces, before the snow becomes more confined to high ground during Thursday morning.”
