MORE bad weather is set to hit Fife after the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning.

The warning for wind and snow is in place from 1pm tomorrow (Wednesday) until 3pm on Thursday.

Forecasters say frequent heavy snow showers are expected along with very gusty winds and a small chance of frequent lightning affecting some places.

The Met Office says there is a "small chance" of injuries and danger to life from flying debris as well as a slight chance of damage to buildings.

Travel disruption may occur while there is a "slight chance" that power cuts may occur, some roads and bridges could close and some rural communities could become cut off.

The forecast adds: "Temperatures across Scotland and Northern Ireland are expected to drop sharply following a squally band of rain on Wednesday, with frequent heavy and blustery snow showers arriving from the Atlantic.

"Away from immediate west-facing coasts, 2-5 cm, and in places 7-10 cm of snow is likely to build up even at low levels, whereas on higher ground some places could see 20-30 cm building up by Thursday morning.

"The showers will be accompanied by strong, blustery winds, with gusts of 50-60 mph possible, and a small chance of 70 mph on coasts. Blizzard conditions are likely over higher ground. There is a very small chance that some of the showers could be accompanied by frequent lightning, which may could impact power supplies.

"Snow showers are increasingly likely to turn back to rain and sleet at low levels later Thursday morning and early afternoon, although remaining as snow above 200-300m."
