Snow near Whitmuir.

Snow fell in parts of the Borders such as Selkirk and Lamancha late in the day and overnight, and a yellow weather warning was issued today, December 26, for ice.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Icy patches are expected tonight and into Wednesday morning.

“Icy patches are expected to develop on untreated surfaces, pavements and cycle paths and where showers wash off treatment.
