Snow brings travel disruption amid warnings of lightning strikes
The Independent says Motorists are facing difficult driving conditions and schools are shut in some areas as snow falls in many parts of the country, amid warnings of lightning strikes.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and lightning, in force until 8pm on Thursday, for most of Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Forecasters say heavy snow showers are expected, along with very gusty winds and a chance of frequent lightning affecting some places.
On the roads, Traffic Scotland said snowy conditions are affecting much of the central belt, the A9 around Slochd in the Highlands and the A90 around Dundee, and urged people to drive according to the conditions.
