Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 10:00 on Saturday until 23:55 on Saturday

Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow over central and southeast Scotland will gradually clear south during Saturday, to become increasingly focused over parts of northern England. Some locally heavy outbreaks of snow are still likely over high ground with snow also to low levels at times, mainly inland. 1-3 cm of snow is possible above 100-200 m and 5 to 10 cm above 300 m. In addition, icy surfaces are possible, particularly where rain falls onto any freezing surfaces and over lying snow. Please be aware of difficult travelling conditions and the risk of some transport disruption due to both snow and icy surfaces. This warning has been updated to move the area further south, whilst at the same time lowering the risk of medium impacts due to snow.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A front over central and southeast Scotland will move slowly and erratically southwards into the far north of England. This will bring outbreaks of mainly rain and sleet over eastern coastal areas and to low levels, but some snow to low levels inland and heavy snow likely across higher ground at times.

Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

Valid from 00:05 on Sunday until 12:00 on Sunday

Showers of sleet and snow are likely during Saturday night and Sunday morning, leading to further accumulations of 2-5 cm of snow in places, with ice an additional hazard, particularly where skies clear after showers during Saturday. Please be aware of the potential for difficult travelling conditions.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A more persistent area of rain, sleet and snow over southern parts of Scotland and parts of northern England will clear from the north during Saturday evening, but leaving behind some sleet and snow showers in places and an increasing risk of ice forming on untreated surfaces. Meanwhile, a cold northeasterly flow will become established across much of Scotland with sleet and snow showers affecting areas exposed to the northeast. During Sunday morning, these showers will become more frequent over the far north of Scotland and the Northern Isles.
