The Met Office has issued a weather warning for ice that covers the edge of Dundee.

The warning says: “Ice is likely to form through Friday night and last into Saturday morning with some sleet and snow showers continuing in places.

“There will probably be ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, potentially resulting in some injuries from slips and falls.”

The Met Office says there is a further risk of snow and ice for Perthshire and Angus on Sunday, with a warning valid from 6am until 6pm for the areas in yellow.

It says: “An area of snow is likely to move eastwards across parts of Scotland and northern England on Sunday.

“The snow is more likely to affect higher routes with lower levels only affected more locally. In addition, rain may fall onto frozen surfaces for a time, particularly across Scotland, following a very cold night.

“Some roads and railways likely to be affected, with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

“Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. The snow is expected to become confined to northeast Scotland later in the day as it progressively turns to rain from the southwest.”
