The Met Office has released a Christmas Day snow warning for Scotland as the country expects another cold snap.
The agency’s yellow warning states that a coming deep freeze could cause issues in Central, Tayside & Fife as people gather to celebrate.
But the snowfall won’t cause the same chaos as last week, with shallow accumulations on low ground.
The forecast states: “Strengthening west-northwesterly winds will bring increasingly frequent wintry showers to the west of Scotland through Sunday night and into Monday morning.
“These may fall as snow to low levels for a time where temporary accumulations of 1-3 cm are possible, with 5-10 cm of snow over the hills.
“Icy surfaces will be an additional hazard. Snow will become increasingly confined to higher ground through Monday morning, with a further 10 cm or so possible by the end of the day.
“Strong to gale force winds bring the risk of drifting and blizzards for upland areas, with a small risk of isolated power outages as the snow and strong wind affects power lines.”
