Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

06:40 on Monday until 15:00 on Monday

An area of sleet and snow will move southwards during Monday morning. Heavier snowfall is expected to affect higher level routes where 2-5 cm of snow is likely to accumulate in places, whilst 1 to 2 cm is possible to lower levels. Some transport routes may be affected, with journeys requiring longer travel times. This is an update to extend the area at risk eastwards into the northeast of Aberdeenshire and delay the end of the warning until 1500 Monday afternoon. The sleet and snow will however clear from the northwest during Monday morning.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A change to much colder conditions will take place across Scotland during Sunday night and Monday morning, with showers turning increasingly to sleet and snow over hills. During Monday morning, an area of more persistent sleet and snow is expected to move south across the northern half of Scotland, with some roads across the Highlands and Grampians likely to be affected by accumulating snow.
