Met Office Warnings Issued For: Highland

  1. Yellow warning of snow

    From:
    0700 on Fri 12 February
    To:
    2350 on Fri 12 February
    Updated 12 February at 06:58 Active

    Warning

    A band of rain, sleet or snow showers will affect parts of northern Scotland during Friday before moving slowly southwards. Snow will be initially confined to high ground but will start falling to lower levels away from coasts. Icy roads may also be a hazard where precipitation falls on frozen surfaces.

    There will be large variations in accumulations due to the showery nature of the snow with some places expected to see little or no snow. However, there is the risk of several cm of snow in places, so please be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.

  2. Yellow warning of ice
