THE Borders is expected to see more cold conditions this weekend as a further yellow warning has been given.

There is a yellow warning for snow and ice is already in place for the region today (Thursday) until 2pm tomorrow (Friday).

However, the Met Office has now issued a new yellow warning for snow and ice which will be in place from 3pm on Saturday until 6am on Sunday (March 11-12).

This latest warning comes with potential delays to travel and traffic and a risk of slips and falls due to slippery conditions.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "An area of low pressure moving in from the southwest through Saturday night into Sunday will bring a band of precipitation across much of the UK.

"The forward edge of this is expected to fall as a transient band of snow which may bring accumulations over higher ground, before turn increasingly to rain from the south through the night.

"However, for some places in the north of this area, this band may become slow-moving and snow may persist into Sunday morning.

"For much of the area, accumulations likely to be confined to elevations above 200m, with 2-5 cm possible, 5-10cm possible above 400m.

"These accumulations likely to begin melting with the onset of rain, although, during this transition freezing rain is possible giving icy conditions, mainly over higher ground.

"In the north, where the band of precipitation becomes slow-moving, similar accumulations are expected although this will not melt, with lying snow remaining through Sunday."

The weekend warning covers all of the Borders, with the exception of communities directly on the coast such as Eyemouth.
