Scotland is expected to be hit by severe winds.

The strong winds may affect Scotland's road, rail, air and ferry services, and longer journey times and cancellation of services are possible.

"The heaviest and most frequent of the snow showers will progressively become confined to north-east Scotland during Saturday".

"Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths".

"Showers will turn increasingly wintry".

A snow warning has been issued for Cumbria.
