Those who love to put on their ski pants
and head for the slopes in Scotland may have a great weekend in store, as more snow is forecast amid colder weather.
The Met Office has said that temperatures have dropped as low as -9.4 C and could hit -10 tonight (February 2nd), but snow showers are mainly concentrated on the east coast.
But chief forecaster Paul Gundersen said this will change as a warmer Atlantic front arrives from the west.
He remarked: "As this front moves in from the west it will come up against cold air and we're likely to see a mixture of rain, sleet and snow across the UK."
However, he noted, as yet it is difficult to say where the greatest levels of snowfall will be, which may be a good reason for both walkers and wintersports fans to keep checking the latest forecast.
Many locations are offering very good ski conditions right now, with the latest report from the Nevis Range near Fort William suggesting there are some good areas for skiing close to the top of the mountain.
