FIFERS are being warned that the cold spell is set to continue after a yellow weather warning was issued.

The Met Office says outbreaks of snow and ice are likely to bring some disruption between 6am and midnight on Friday.

Roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services while icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths are expected.

There will also be a "slight chance" that power cuts will occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

The warning adds: "Outbreaks of sleet and snow will spread across much of southern, central and western Scotland through Friday. 1-3 cm of snow is likely in places below 200 metres, with 5-8 cm possible above 200 metres south of the Central Belt.

"Over high ground north of the Central Belt, there is potential for 10-20cm to accumulate above 200 metres through Friday. Later in the day, snow at low levels will likely turn to rain. In addition to the snow, sleet or rain may fall onto frozen surfaces leading to some icy conditions."
