Chief Forecasters Assessment

 

Showers of hail and snow are expected through Monday morning. The showers will be heaviest and most frequent across western and northern Scotland where 2-5 cm of snow is likely to accumulate relatively widely, with some areas, particularly above 150 m, possibly seeing 6-10 cm of snow. Elsewhere snow at low levels will be more temporary, with accumulations of 2 to 5 cm likely above 150 m. Strong winds will lead to drifting of snow, with temporary blizzard conditions over higher routes. The showers will gradually become less frequent and heavy from the south through Monday morning.

 

Heavy hail and snow showers are expected during Monday morning and will lead to ice and snow accumulating on many surfaces. The showers will be heaviest and     most frequent across parts of western and northern Scotland. Longer journey times by road, bus and train services are likely while some vehicles could become stranded. Ice is likely to form on untreated pavements, cycle paths and roads leading to some injuries from slips and falls. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.
