More snow, ice and flood warnings are in place across Scotland.

The Met Office said snow showers were expected in the central Scotland, Grampian, Highlands and Argyll and Bute regions.

The yellow snow and ice warnings are in place until 10:00 on Sunday and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency has issued 38 flood warnings and 8 flood alerts.

Roads and railways are likely to be affected.

Longer journey times are expected and drivers are being advised to expect difficult conditions and icy patches.

Heavy rain on Friday led to vehicles becoming stranded in Paisley and Lochwinnoch in Renfrewshire and in Old Kilpatrick, West Dunbartonshire.

The wet conditions also led to the postponement of Friday’s Scottish Premiership match between St Mirren and Hearts at the Simple Digital Arena in Paisley.

Elsewhere, ScotRail had to close the line between Stirling and Perth for safety reasons after water levels breached a marker on the Mill O’Keir viaduct.

On the roads, flooding forced the closure of the northbound M876 at junction 2 Broomage in central Scotland.

Last weekend road, rail and ferry links were hit and football matches cancelled as Storm Dennis swept across Scotland.

While the overall picture has improved during the week, parts of north-west England experienced more than a month’s worth of rain between Thursday and Friday.
