Over the weekend, the Met Office is mainly expecting Edinburgh to be cold with brisk winds and wintry showers mainly focused to the west of the Capital.

The forecast comes as yellow weather warnings of snow have been issued across Scotland over the weekend. However, in the east, this is predicted to only affect West Lothian.

But this does not rule out heavy snow predicted in the Capital, according to the Met Office.
