A YELLOW weather warning has been issued across Clydebank as the town braces itself for high winds and snow.

The Met Office has issued the warning from Wednesday, January 11, to Friday, January 13.

High winds of speeds at 70 mph or more are expected to hit the town and wintry showers will arrive in the afternoon.

By evening several centimetres of snow will begin with cold northerly winds bringing in frequent snow showers through Thursday and into Friday.

The office said travel conditions will likely turn "tricky" due to the combination of bad weather.

On their website, it states the poor conditions have been caused by "a deepening depression (which) will pass northern Scotland on Wednesday, accompanied by strong and gusty winds."

It adds: "It will also start to pull in much colder air, which will lead to the showers turning to snow, sleet and hail in many areas later in the day. Lightning may accompany the heavier showers, with potential disruption to power supplies."
