Met Office Warnings Issued For: Aberdeenshire

  1. Yellow warning of snow

    0800 on Wed 28 January
    2355 on Thu 29 January
    Updated 27 January at 12:15 Active


    Showers are expected to turn to snow across parts of northern Scotland during Wednesday morning, the risk then transferring to other areas through the rest of the day, continuing overnight and for much of Thursday.

    Across Northern England 3-8 cm could accumulate by Thursday morning, especially over high ground. Over Scotland and Northern Ireland 5-10 cm may fall even at some lower levels, with more than 15 cm possible over higher ground. Strong, gusty winds will lead to drifting and temporary blizzards over high ground, while icy surfaces and lightning pose additional risks in some areas.This is an update to extend the warning a little further south across the Pennines. Note also that there is some signal that more frequent snow showers may affect parts of southern and central Scotland through the evening peak travel period on Wednesday, and this may lead to eventual issue of an Amber warning.

    The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

A list of all UK Warnings can be found on our More UK Weather page.
