Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of ice

    1800 on Tue 3 March
    1000 on Wed 4 March
    Updated 3 March at 10:20 Active


    Following showers of a wintry mix during Tuesday, icy stretches are expected to form on untreated surfaces on Tuesday evening and last into Wednesday morning's rush hour. In addition, further showers are likely overnight which may lead to wash-off of salt. These showers will be wintry over high ground, giving further local snow accumulations of some 2-5 cm above around 400 m though nearer 250 m over northern Scotland.

    The public should be aware of the risk of tricky traveling conditions in places.
