Please see below another update on the forecast and warnings for the next few days from the Met office.
Snow showers will continue to affect eastern Scotland during today, these largely becoming confined to southeast Scotland later today and easing in intensity. A large area Yellow warning for Snow is valid until midnight tonight and covers much of eastern Scotland and the Northern Isles. It’s worth noting that anywhere that sees a heavy shower or showers line up to give a period of more persistent snow could see localised travel disruption e.g. due to RTCs or HGVs struggling to climb hills. A Yellow Warning for Snow & Ice is valid from midnight tonight until 1200 on Friday. This covers eastern Scotland and the Orkney Islands. The Shetland Islands will be added to the warning area. Messy transition to milder conditions over the weekend, with different weather hazards in different places at different times across Scotland – rain, snow, ice and wind.
The warnings will continue to be reviewed and updated. In addition to the snow showers at times, overnight ice will also be a hazard over the next few days.
