Yellow warning for snow

The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for snow across the North-East of Scotland.

The Met Office warning which comes in to force at 1800 on Easter Sunday and remains in place until 2359 on Monday night, warns of

Frequent heavy snow showers will affect northern Scotland on Sunday night and Monday and may lead to some travel disruption.

The forecast is

A very cold northerly airflow will become established across the UK through Sunday night and Monday morning. Very strong north to northwest winds will spread hail and snow showers inland across many areas, but the most frequent showers will affect northern Scotland. Here, 2-5cm may accumulate at low levels away from north-facing coasts, with 5-10cm above 150m, and 15cm possible on highest ground above 300m. The strong winds will cause drifting of lying snow, and blizzard conditions at times on higher ground.

Aberdeenshire Council roads team are planning to grit all routes from 6 pm this evening
