Showers on Monday morning will fall increasingly as snow and hail into Tuesday in the Western Isles said the Met Office.

Snow will accumulate mainly on hills but locally to lower ground too.

Ice is also likely to form on untreated surfaces, whilst lightning may be an additional hazard.

This may lead to some transport disruption and difficult driving conditions.

Gale force winds will ease later but conditions will remain blustery.

Forecasters say air of Arctic origin is bringing frequent wintry showers across the area.

1 to 3 cm snowfall is likely across many areas above 100-200 m away from west-facing coasts whilst 5 cm or more is likely to settle above around 300 metres

Showers will continue through Tuesday, though lying snow is expected to melt below 300 metres or so.
