RAC spokesman Rod Dennis said: “Strong, gusty winds are leading to hazardous conditions on many highland and lowland routes in Scotland, and other parts of northern England and Northern Ireland. Drivers will need to take extreme care and slow down, especially on more exposed stretches of road. On Saturday, high winds will be combined with wintry showers, making driving conditions more treacherous.

"Disruption on the roads is likely, so motorists should listen for and heed all local weather warnings, expect their journeys to take longer than usual and, when out on the road, take particular care overtaking other motorists.”
