Snowfalls have been forecast across much of Scotland through until Sunday

BBC Scotland is reporting that a series of Met Office snow alerts has been put in place for Scotland spread out over seven days.

The first is for southern and central parts of the country and began at 22:00 on Monday and runs until midnight on Tuesday.

It is followed by another warning covering the south and more northern areas for Wednesday and Thursday.

A final warning – covering the majority of the country – runs from Friday until 12:00 on Sunday.

The Met Office yellow alerts are at the lower end of the scale, with some disruption a possibility.

Two schools were shut completely in Dumfries and Galloway due to the conditions – at Hardgate and Borgue in the west of the region.

The heaviest snowfalls could see up to 40cm (16in) over the Grampians with smaller amounts at lower levels.

The latest warnings come after Storm Christoph left many parts of the county under a blanket of snow last month.

It brought with it an amber warning for a slice of southern and central Scotland.

Lockdown restrictions on travel which are currently in place already mean people should only be making essential journeys.

Be careful out there – that is if you go out. Time to get the message to stay in the house.
