RENFREWSHIRE'S weather woes are set to continue after the chaos of Storm Ciara - with the area set for snow. 

The Met Office originally put a 48-hour yellow weather warning for snow and strong winds for much of the country between today and Tuesday.

But this has since been extended for another 12 hours on Wednesday - with alerts also being raised over the dangers of ice conditions. 

Forecasters are predicting up to 20cm of snow in some parts of the country over the first two days of the warning.

It follows a weekend in which flooding was reported across Renfrewshire. 

The Renfrew Ferry was forced to cancel its services on Sunday after the River Clyde burst its banks.

A flood alert was issued for the town during the afternoon and a number of businesses had to temporarily close as Storm Ciara battered the UK.

The SEPA alert read: “A combination of high tides and prevailing weather conditions means localised flooding of low lying areas in and around Ferry Road may be possible around the time of the high tide on Sunday at approximately 13:00 hours

"Access to nearby streets and properties is also likely to be impacted by flood water."

A Met Office forecast for Johnstone is predicting "bitterly cold" conditions with strong winds and snow falling to lower levels in "heavier showers".

They are warning of further travel delays with the possibility of some drivers being stranded on roads.

Injury from slips and falls are also being predicted - especially on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. 

The Scottish Government has since issued a warning ahead of the treacherous conditions. 

Transport Secretary Michael Matheson said: “The Met Office is telling us that we are facing a prolonged period of adverse weather, with Storm Ciara bringing strong winds and rain to most of Scotland this weekend.

“We’re also being told to expect snow and high winds throughout Monday and on Tuesday morning, so there is the potential for significant disruption on the trunk road network, as well as other modes of transport.

“It’s important that people check the latest information before they set off, drive to the conditions and follow Police Scotland travel advice.”
