A YELLOW weather warning for snow and ice has been extended to the middle of this week.

The warning which stretches from Melrose to the Borders coastline began at 12am this morning (Monday, March 6) and will now be in place until 10am on Wednesday (March 8).

This warning has a very low likelihood and medium impact, however the Met Office has also warned that there is a chance of travel delays and potential for injury from slips or falls.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Cold, blustery northerly winds will continue to drive frequent showers of snow and hail into these areas on Tuesday.

"The highest accumulations are likely again over the high ground of northern Scotland, where another 5-10cm are possible by the end of the day.

"Accumulations at lower levels are most likely Tuesday early hours where 2-5cm could accumulate locally.

"During Tuesday night, showers will then tend to become increasingly confined to northern Scotland.

"Icy stretches are likely, especially on untreated surfaces, particularly during hours of darkness."
