VIDEO: Met Office predicts path of ‘heavy snow’ as weather warning extended in Tayside and Fife

The Met Office has predicted widespread snowfall throughout Tayside and Fife after extending its weather warning.

The Courier reported last week that “heavy snow” would follow Storm Ciara in Tayside and issued a yellow weather warning for the western parts of our area for Monday and early on Tuesday.

‘Heavy snow’ to follow Storm Ciara in Tayside as Met Office warns of further weather threats

This warning has now been extended both in geography and timescale, with the whole of Perthshire, Dundee and parts of Angus and Fife all under a yellow weather warning for wind and snow until 11.59pm on Tuesday February 11.

The Met Office has also released a video, predicting where the snow will hit, which can be viewed above this article.

The area covered by the Met Office’s wind and snow weather warning on Monday and Tuesday.

The updated weather warning says that heavy snow and strong winds will combine to lead to disruption to travel, especially over higher routes.

Frequent and heavy snow showers will affect the region throughout Monday and Tuesday, it says.

The warning adds: “Snow showers will occur especially over high ground, giving slight accumulations of 1 to 3 cm above 150 metres and 5-10 cm above 300 metres.

“Snow will gradually build up and in a few locations, accumulations of over 20 cm are possible by Tuesday evening over the highest routes in Scotland.

“The height of the snow level will vary throughout the period, but it is likely that any snow accumulations at low levels will only be temporary.

“Strong winds, gusting 50-60 mph, will lead to blizzard conditions at times and considerable drifting of lying snow over high ground. Icy surfaces are likely to occur, more especially on Monday night into Tuesday morning.

“Frequent lightning strikes are also possible, perhaps leading to interruptions to power supplies.”

A further yellow weather warning has been issued for snow and ice on Wednesday morning, covering areas west of Perth.

The area covered by the Met Office’s snow and ice weather warning on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It says: “Further snow showers are likely on Wednesday morning. These are likely to lead to further accumulations of a few cm of snow over ground above around 150 metres.

“Any snow accumulations over lower ground are likely to be temporary. Icy surfaces will be an additional hazard.”

The warnings follow a weekend of disruption after Storm Ciara brought heavy rain and wind to Tayside and Fife.

  • In Perth, revellers were “millimetres” from death when the roof of popular pub The Venue collapsed, sending chunks of masonry onto the pavement below. Video is below.
  • In Dundee, emergency crews were drafted in to deal with severe flooding on Riverside Drive on Sunday afternoon as the River Tay overflowed during high tide.
