People are being warned to expect disruption with weather warnings of snow and ice in place for much of Scotland from Friday into Saturday. The Met Office has warned some roads and railways are likely to be affected while there is a chance of power cuts and disruption to mobile phone services. Weather warnings of snow and rain south of the border have expired, though flood warnings and alerts remain in place throughout much of England. In Scotland, a yellow weather warning for snow and ice stretching from the Orkney Isles down to Stirling comes into effect at 3pm on Friday and remains in force until 6pm on Saturday. A separate yellow warning for snow came into effect at 12pm on Thursday and will remain in place until 3pm on Friday. That warning covers most of the central belt and parts of the Scottish Borders but also extends north, merging with the other weather warning. Train operator Scotrail announced on X, formerly known as twitter, that it intends to run most services as normal, with the only changes taking place on its West Highland Line. Ferry operator Calmac has announced a number of delays and cancellations due to the adverse weather. The company advised its passengers to check the status of routes on its website ahead of travelling. The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency has issued two flood warnings for Scotland. Both north and south Luce Bay in Dumfries and Galloway are affected, with the warnings in place until 11.30am on Friday.
