With Glasgow already having to endure the harsh weather conditions for two days now, things are soon to get worse.
Police have instructed members of the public not to travel unless essential, as roads are treacherous.
Last night, hundreds of motorists have been stuck on the M74 between Scotland and England for hours on end. Drivers were trapped in their vehicles for a long time due to the heavy snow.

Therefore, the police have now issued this warning on Twitter to protect drivers:
‘’We’re advising drivers in much of the southern and central belt areas to avoid travelling on the roads tonight, following a warning by the Met Office of severe weather between 9pm and 5am tomorrow.’’

Conditions are soon to become poorer. The Met Office have issued an ‘amber’ weather warning for tonight as weather conditions will be severe.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington, stated: ‘’On the northern edge of this low pressure system we are expecting to see some more snow. Parts of northern England, southern Scotland and Northern Ireland are likely to see the heaviest and most persistent snow, with 3 to 8 cm of fresh snow in places and, over higher ground, there could be as much as 20 cm.’’

The Clyde Insider has contacted Scotland’s Transport Minister, Humza Yousaf, and we are waiting on a comment from his office. We will post an update when we know more.
