A yellow weather warning for snow and lightening is in place across Ayrshire until 8pm tonight.

It comes as heavy snowfall last night and the early hours of this morning caused issues across the roads and public transport services of Ayrshire.


Traffic across Ayrshire appears to be moving slowly.

Ayrshire Road policing officers are currently dealing with incidents due to the heavy snowfall on the A71 and A77.

Traffic across North Ayrshire seemed to be particularly affected this morning, with queues around the Warrix Interchange, however that appears to have eased slightly now.

Roads in and around Glasgow appear to be heavily affected by the weather.

Drivers again are being asked to exercise caution throughout the day.

Ayrshire police divisional commander, Faroque Hussain, has also issued a warning for drivers to "take care when driving today".

Train services 

ScotRail have said that most train services are running as normal so far, but passengers are being advised to keep an eye on their website for any updates.

A signalling fault between Paisley Gilmour Street and Glasgow Central is currently causing delays to services to Ayr, Ardrossan and Largs.

ScotRail's twitter page will also have regular updates on any delays or service issues.

Bus services

Stagecoach West Scotland have said that "all services will be subject to delay and/or cancellations due to extreme weather".

They also say that most buses in Glasgow area and Ayrshire are running late.
