Chief Forecaster's assessment

Most of the snow accumulations will occur above 200 m where 2-5 cm is likely in places, mainly over higher parts of western Scotland and Northern Ireland where greater amounts are likely at higher elevations. However, 1-2 cm is possible at low levels very locally where heavier showers occur.
