Met Office snow warning for parts of Tayside with 10cm set to accompany 75mph storm

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow and ice in parts of Tayside.

The Courier reported yesterday that Scotland is set to be battered by a storm for the third successive weekend.

Parts of Tayside and Fife were hit badly by Storm Dennis last weekend and Storm Ciara the one previous.

And now the area is subject to three separate Met Office weather warnings as unsettled weather once again arrives at the weekend.

The first warning is for heavy rain in parts of Perthshire today.

The second is for wind speeds of up to 75mph across the whole of Scotland on Saturday.

And now the forecaster has issued a further yellow warning for snow and ice covering much of Perthshire on Saturday, valid between 3am to 9pm.

The Met Office warning for snow and ice is valid from 3am to 9pm Saturday.

The latest warning says: “Showers will turn increasing wintry overnight and through Saturday with snow beginning to settle away from the west coast.

“Accumulations of 1 to 3cm are expected above 100 to 200m with 5 to 10cm above 300m. Icy patches will be an additional hazard along with some strong, gusty winds.”

It adds that road and rail users are likely to suffer longer journey times and there may be injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.


Friday’s rain warning

The Met Office warning for rain is valid from 6am to 9pm Friday.

The Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain, which will be in force from 6am until 9pm on Friday. The organisation said the showers will be “persistent” and “heavy”.

Saturday’s wind warning

The wind warning, covering the whole of Scotland between 6am and 10pm, says: “Strong, gusty winds are expected across Scotland, Northern Ireland and parts of northern England during Saturday.

The wind warning covers the whole of Scotland between 6am and 10pm on Saturday.

“The strongest winds will likely occur in the vicinity of heavy, squally showers. Whilst not all areas will see the strongest winds, gusts of 55-65 mph are expected in places. Exposed parts of northern and western Scotland may see gusts of 65-75 mph.

“Showers will fall as a mixture of rain, hail and sleet with snow accumulations expected to be restricted to higher ground (above 200 to 300 m). Winds will gradually moderate during Saturday evening.”

The warning predicts delays to road, rail, air and ferry transport, with some journeys taking longer.

It added: “It’s likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves.”
