North wind brings icy weather for Hogmanay and New Year’s Day

31 December 2016

A band of wintry weather is forecast for the Western Isles and north of Scotland

Wintry showers, freezing rain and slippery roads are likely to affect parts of the Western Isles before and after the official warning period which is from after midnight until lunchtime on Sunday.

Snow will be an additional hazard on higher ground.

The Met Office said: “Showers of rain, sleet and snow are expected and, with temperatures falling below freezing, ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces.

“On higher roads across Scotland accumulations of 2-5cm of snow are possible, with some drifting in the strong northerly winds.”
