Inverclyde could see heavy snow and ice amid a four-day warning of wintry weather.

The Met Office has once again placed Inverclyde on yellow alert as more treacherous conditions have been forecast for the coming week.

Today and tomorrow sees a warning for ice with it expected to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The national weather service has warned of a higher likelihood of accidents or injuries.

A spokesperson said: "Some hilly areas will see a further cover of 1-3 cm snow before a rapid freeze.

"Ice will become widespread over northern Scotland from around dusk and much of the rest of Scotland by late evening or the early hours."

As we head into Wednesday, there is a chance of heavy snow across the region which is likely to cause 'significant travel disruption'.

The Met Office added: "There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected."

Inverclyde has been placed under this warning until 9pm on Thursday evening.
