Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of snow

    From:
    1000 on Tue 3 March
    To:
    1800 on Tue 3 March
    Updated 3 March at 09:41 Active

    Warning

    Heavy wintry showers will continue to affect Scotland today. While they will turn more to sleet or even rain at lower levels, they will remain as snow on high ground. Above around 250 m another 1-3 cm is likely, though tending to melt between showers, while on ground above 400 m, another 5-8 cm may accumulate. Some temporary slushy accumulations are possible to low levels in the heaviest of the showers which will be accompanied by hail. The public should be aware of the risk of difficult driving conditions and the possibility of some localised minor disruption.

  2. Yellow warning of ice

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

    Warning

    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.

  3. Yellow early warning of rain

    From:
    1200 on Fri 6 March

    2355 on Sat 7 March
    Updated 3 March at 10:30
