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.
