A WEATHER warning for "heavy snow and strong winds" has been put in place covering the entire west of Scotland.

Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire are bracing for Storm Ciara - which is set to bring 80mph gusts from the Atlantic. 

The Met Office have put a warning for strong winds on both Saturday and Sunday, before adding an additional snow warning for Monday and Tuesday.

Their yellow warning statement says: "Heavy snow and strong winds will combine to lead to disruption to travel, especially over higher routes.

"There is a chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel".

Loss of power is also to be expected with coastal communities to be hit by large waves.
