Snow warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow

Be aware

Valid from 10:00 on Tuesday until 18:00 on Tuesday

Heavy wintry showers will continue to affect Scotland today. While they will turn more to sleet or even rain at lower levels, they will remain as snow on high ground. Above around 250 m another 1-3 cm is likely, though tending to melt between showers, while on ground above 400 m, another 5-8 cm may accumulate. Some temporary slushy accumulations are possible to low levels in the heaviest of the showers which will be accompanied by hail. The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and the possibility of some localised minor disruption.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A strong cold west to southwesterly airstream is continuing to bring frequent wintry showers to much of Scotland. While conditions at lower levels will generally be improving due to the strengthening March sunshine and slightly less cold air spreading in from the west, on higher ground these showers will still be heavy enough for snow to settle on the roads. A separate warning will cover the risk of ice which will become the main emphasis over a wider area of the UK this evening and tonight.

Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of ice

Be aware

Valid from 18:00 on Tuesday until 10:00 on Wednesday

Following showers of a wintry mix during Tuesday, icy stretches are expected to form on untreated surfaces on Tuesday evening and last into Wednesday morning's rush hour. In addition, further showers are likely overnight which may lead to wash-off of salt. These showers will be wintry over high ground, giving further local snow accumulations of some 2-5 cm above around 400 m though nearer 250 m over northern Scotland. The public should be aware of the risk of tricky traveling conditions in places.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

The cold westerly flow covering the UK will gradually veer round to northwesterly overnight. Further showers are likely overnight, but with the air slightly less cold than than of late, accumulating snow levels should be largely confined to higher ground.

Rain warning of yellow

Yellow warning of rain

Be aware

Valid from 12:00 on Friday until 23:55 on Saturday

Rain will be persistent and heavy at times through much of Friday and Saturday. The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding and some travel disruption.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

A slow-moving Atlantic front will bring a prolonged spell of wet weather to much of west and northwest Scotland within a very mild, moist southwesterly flow. Rainfall totals of 50-75 mm are expected widely, with over 100 mm in the wettest spots in the warning area. As the very mild air is drawn in on the strong southwesterly airstream, snowmelt will add to the flooding risk. There remains some doubt about the extent and location of the heaviest rain so this alert will be updated in the coming days as the picture becomes clearer.
