Scots are warned to brace themselves for a cold snap as temperatures are set to drop to -10.

STV weatherman Sean Batty has said the mercury will drop dramatically overnight on Friday and Saturday.

Friday will be a dry day but with frost around in the early morning and late at night, with a high of only 4C - must colder than in previous days.

On Saturday there will be cold widespread frosts with overnight temperatures as low as -5C in some places.

Batty warned of "cold night ahead", he added: "On Friday and Saturday night temperatures will drop to lows of -5C in some towns and villages, and possibly -10C in a few Highland glens.

"This is just a short cold snap with temperatures rising again next week.

"At least it'll help you cool if you're running about for Black Friday deals."

The Met Office said there will be icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, and there could be some injuries from slips and falls.

The weather will turn milder and cloudier from Monday.
