Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

08:00 on Thursday until 22:00 on Thursday

An area of snow will cross central parts of Scotland from west to east today bringing accumulations of 3-6 cm, principally above 100 m, with the risk of more than 10 cm above 200 m or so. At lower levels a mix of rain, sleet and snow is expected. Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A depression moving into the area is encountering cold air, bringing snow even to low levels at times.

Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

23:05 on Thursday until 09:00 on Friday

An area of rain, sleet and snow will come southeastwards into the area later on Thursday lasting into Friday morning. Accumulations of 5-10 cm are likely above 200-300 m with locally 2-4 cm to around 100 m. Please be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A depression moving eastwards across northern parts of Northern England on Thursday evening will bring cold air in its wake, causing showery outbreaks of rain to turn to snow, principally on hills but also to low levels at times.

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

23:05 on Thursday until 14:00 on Friday

This is an update to the warning issued on Wednesday to bring the area on concern further south. A spell of persistent and at times heavy snow is expected for parts of eastern Scotland starting on Thursday night and lasting into Friday. By Friday morning, accumulations of 5-10 cm are likely above about 100 m with 15 cm or more possible above 200 m. At lower levels and near coasts an uncertain mix of rain and snow is expected, with rain likely to predominate, bringing the risk of standing water on roads. Please be aware of the risk of dangerous driving conditions and disruption to transport.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A depression is expected to cross northern parts of Northern England later on Thursday and into Friday bringing a slow-moving band of rain, sleet and snow into the area on Thursday evening. This is likely to come to a halt somewhere across eastern Scotland, though there are differences between models in the position which brings uncertainty about location, with latest indications that it is likely to be further south than previously expected. In addition, there are uncertainties about the lowest level to which snow will fall, which could be 100 m either side of heights quoted in the warning. This warning will be kept under review and may be updated.
