Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of wind

    0300 on Wed 22 February
    1500 on Wed 22 February
    Updated 21 February at 08:50


    West to northwesterly severe gales are expected for a time on Wednesday, bringing gusts of 65-70 mph and locally 75-80 mph over parts of the Northern Isles.

    This may to lead to some disruption to road, air and ferry transport.

  2. Yellow warning of snow

    0200 on Thu 23 February
    1800 on Thu 23 February
    Updated 21 February at 10:07


    Snow is expected over high ground of northern England and Scotland on Thursday and may fall to low levels for a time in Scotland.
    Snow accumulations of 5 to 10 cm are expected on some hills with 2 to 5 cm possible to lower levels to the north of the Central Lowlands. The largest accumulations of 10 to 20 cm are likely on highest parts of the north Pennines and Southern Uplands.In addition, strong winds are expected to develop with gusts of 50 to 60 mph. This will result in drifting of the snow and blizzard conditions over high ground. Associated heavy rain at lower levels will be an additional hazard.

    The combination of snow, strong winds and heavy rain is likely to lead to disruption to transport networks and perhaps power supplies.
