Overnight into Tuesday morning snowfalls will become persistent and occasionally heavier across much of eastern and some central parts of Scotland. These snowfalls will last through Tuesday afternoon before easing by mid-evening. Strong to gale force easterly winds will drift the snow, especially over upland areas above 150 metres where blizzard conditions are expected. Some transport disruption is expected and possibly to power supplies. Over upland parts of the east 15 to 25cm of snow could accumulate during daylight hours Tuesday.
The public should be prepared for the possibility of disruption to travel.
