Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of snow

    From:
    1100 on Fri 19 December
    To:
    0900 on Sat 20 December
    Updated 19 December at 10:55 Active

    Warning

    Sleet and snow showers are expected to continue throughout Friday and early Saturday, giving lying snow in places. This will be chiefly on higher ground above 200 m, where 2 to 4 cm may accumulate, whilst areas above 400 m may see 5 to 10 cm. Some drifting of the lying snow will occur in the strong winds, while icy stretches affect untreated surfaces.

    The public should be aware of possible hazardous driving conditions. This is an update to the warning issued on Thursday, to pull the warning area a little further east across Aberdeenshire and Angus.

  2. Yellow warning of ice

  3. Yellow early warning of rain

    From:
    0300 on Sun 21 December
    To:
    1500 on Mon 22 December
    Updated 19 December at 11:25

    Alert

    Outbreaks of rain reaching northwest Scotland in the early hours of Sunday will spread southeast across the country during the day. The rain will become persistent and often heavy across western areas, and as much milder air arrives, lying snow in upland areas will thaw. The heaviest rain looks like becoming more confined to southwest Scotland later on Sunday before potentially moving north again on Monday morning, finally clearing on Monday afternoon.

    The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, particularly on the road network, where there will be a lot of surface water and spray.
