Monday night and Tuesday morning would see more rains, more snow and lightning in Scotland. The Met Office has issued a Yellow warning for the west coast, central belt, Highlands and islands and Dumfries and Galloway.

STV weatherman Sean Batty said the higher ground could get more two inches of snow amid the wintry weather.

The warnings were issued on March 20 and marked the vernal equinox, which means the start of spring in the northern hemisphere. It is learned the Arctic blast could hit on Monday night.

Batty added, “On Monday, a deep, low pressure centre drifted across the far north of the country bringing strong and gusty winds and has helped to drag cold air from the Arctic.”

The weatherman continued the freezing level will significantly drop on Monday and the snow fall could happen to low levels too in the heavier showers.

On the high ground the showers have been turning to snow increasingly throughout the day in the west.

It is also being said the wintry showers to continue through Tuesday too across western and central parts, and the low levels to experience rain.

The MET adds some of the places in Highlands could experience temperature drop to -10C too.

Motorists black ice could be formed on untreated surfaces and lightning could be an additional hazard in disrupting transport.
