Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 22:00 on Saturday until 15:00 on Sunday

Heavy rain will spread northeast across Scotland during Saturday night and Sunday, falling as snow down to 300-400 m in places. Accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible, mainly above 400 m. Strong easterly winds could result in some drifting. The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions on higher roads. In addition, conditions are likely to be hazardous for those out on the hills and mountains, whilst heavy rain at lower elevations may lead to surface water on roads. The warning has been updated to reduce the extent of the area and also to reduce the amounts of snow.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

An active front will encounter cold air as it pushes into Scotland, with rain turning to snow over high ground. Winds will increase, gusting to over 50 mph on hills, and causing snow to drift. There is a fair amount of uncertainty about just how low snow will penetrate, and whether it will affect road levels.
