Snow and ice is set to cause disruption across parts of North Ayrshire tomorrow, with Ardrossan looking to bear the brunt of the wintery conditions.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice expected to begin around 6pm on Wednesday, December 2, lasting until midday on Thursday, December 3.

The snow showers and icy stretches are expected to tamper with travel plans for those journeying on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

Locals are told to expect delays when travelling by train or bus as some roads and railways are likely to be affected.

They are also advised to be extra cautious when walking on icy surfaces to prevent slips and falls.

Some icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths may persist.

Areas also affected will be:

  • East Ayrshire
  • South Ayrshire

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald:

A statement from the Met Office reads: "Frequent showers will increasingly turn to snow Wednesday night and persist into Thursday morning though these likely to fall as sleet and hail at times, mainly around coasts.

"Northwest Scotland looks most exposed to these showers with 2cm of snow accumulating by Thursday morning in places even to low levels.

"Larger accumulations are expected at higher elevations with 2-5 cm above 200m and up to 10cm over some of the highest routes.

"Whilst the Southern Uplands is likely to see some snow over higher ground the likelihood is that only very small accumulations are expected here below 200m."
