Snow warning of yellow Ice warning of yellow

Yellow warning of snow and ice

Be aware

12:00 on Sunday until 12:00 on Monday

Wintry showers will become more frequent over northern Scotland on Sunday afternoon, with some extending to Northern Ireland during Sunday evening and night. A further 2-5 cm of snow is likely over parts of northern mainland Scotland with 5-10 cm possible over some high ground. Elsewhere, ice is likely to be the main hazard, though there could be snowfalls of 2-5 cm on some high ground. Some roads, pavements and cycle paths will be slippery, and some longer journey times by road and bus services are likely, right through the Monday morning rush hour.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Wintry showers gradually become more widespread from the north through the rest of Sunday and Sunday night, continuing into Monday morning. With many showers on low ground falling as a wintry mix of rain sleet or snow, ice will be the main hazard for much of the warning area, but with cold air in place across northern Scotland, the showers will be mainly of snow away from the coastal areas.
