Tayside and Fife is forecast to by hit heavy snow this weekend.
The Met Office has issued a “severe” yellow weather warning, with 8in of the white stuff possible in parts of the local area.
The forecaster said travel disruption is likely across the region.
The warning will be in place on Saturday from 4am until 9pm.
Up to 8in of snow could land on ground above 1,148ft, however the Met Office said accumulations of up to 3.9in could land at lower levels if the showers are “heavy enough to maintain snow for a longer duration”.
The Met Office weather warning states: “A developing area of low pressure is expected to track across Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland on Saturday.
“As this runs into colder air, snow is likely to develop, particularly in any heavier bursts of precipitation.
“The largest snowfall amounts will be confined to higher ground, with the potential for 10-20 cm (3.9in-8in) of snow above 350m (1,148ft).
“Between 100m (328ft) and 350m elevation, a mixture of rain, sleet and snow is more likely, but there is potential for accumulations of 2-5 cm (0.8in-2in), and a small chance of 10cm should the precipitation be heavy enough to maintain snow for a longer duration.
“With warm air close by to the south, it may be that places in the south of this warning area end up with mainly rain.”
