North East To Be Hit by Snow

North East To Be Hit by Snow

With snow showers expected to begin late on Tuesday and last into Wednesday, the Met Office has issued a warning about probable travel disruption on the roads and railways.

Due to the expected arrival of snow in the north-east, a yellow weather warning has been issued for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire the following week.

As sporadic snow showers are expected to approach from the north on Tuesday evening, the Met Office issued the warning for Wednesday, December 7.

Forecasted snowfall then continues through until Wednesday evening, with the warning in place from midnight on Wednesday for 24 hours, with temperatures set to drop as low as -1C.

The latest warning comes after several were put in place last month for heavy rainfall, including an amber warning which saw parts of the north-east hit by flooding.

Travel disruption is expected as a result of the snowy weather, with forecasters issuing warnings of potential disruption to road and rail journeys next week.

The Met Office warning hints at larger accumulations of snowfall on higher ground and blizzard conditions, as it reads: “Showers will fall as snow to low levels on Wednesday.

“Accumulations of 2-5 cm are possible at lower levels, with 5-10 cm above 200 metres, with some drifting and blizzard conditions in the strong northerly winds.”
