Over Thursday and Friday, a band of rain will push across Scotland, which will likely turn to snow, according to Met Office Meteorologist Clare Nasir.

Snow and ice is forecast to affect several areas, including the Highlands and Islands, Central, Tayside and Fife, south west Scotland, Lothian and Borders and all of Strathclyde, including Glasgow.

Winds are expected to pick up speed over Thursday, particularly across the North-West, which could experience gales for a short-time.

Some areas may also experience a phenomenon known as ‘thundersnow’, which occurs when warm air from the south west is expected to collide with cold winds from the north.

The Met Office forecast says that snow and ice will affect several areas of Scotland.
