The Met Office has today issued two further yellow weather warnings for the Borders.

The first is for ice from 6pm today until 9am on Saturday. The second is for wind and is in place from 12pm Sunday to 12pm Monday.

A yellow weather warning for snow remains in place until 6pm this evening and there is still some snow expected later today. Low temperatures expected along with an associated ice risk.

The warnings cover the majority of the Borders, although some eastern areas are not covered.

On Sunday and into Monday, further strong winds are expected from the west, with gusts of up to 60mph inland and up to 80mph over more exposed, higher ground. The exact track of this weather system has been changing and therefore there is still a significant degree of uncertainty about what areas of Scotland will be most affected.

Residents asked to be prepared

Residents are asked to be prepared for the conditions with the Met Office warning of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, additionally, some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle path are to be expected.
