WEATHER warnings have been issued for more snow to hit the West of Scotland tomorrow, as temperatures remain low this week.

Morning commuters slithered to work from outlying areas today where temperatures plunged to -5˚C, but the city itself remained around 0˚C.

Forecasters warned commuters of icy conditions on the roads again tomorrow morning as temperatures are predicted to fall as low as -4˚C overnight.

Tomorrow's forecast is for heavy rain, but the Met Office have published snow warnings for Glasgow and the West.

Sarah Holland, from the Met Office, said: "It is going to turn cold very quickly tonight.

"Temperatures could go down to -4˚, quite early on tonight, dropping to -6˚ or -7˚."

Predictions of the winter weather continuing come as health boards have been told they will get an extra £3 million to help the NHS cope with the demands of winter.

The higher number of falls due to icy conditions can put a strain on the health service.

There are also warnings that higher-than normal levels of the winter vomiting bug, known as Norovirus, could add further pressure.

The cash will go on measures including extra out-of-hours cover and increased home support services.

Health Secretary Alex Neil said: "These measures will make sure our NHS is fighting fit for winter."
