  1. Transport Minister Humzah Yousaf told BBC Radio Scotland:

    “There is a possibility that the amber warning could be in some areas upgraded to a red. That is a warning for snow that we have never seen since the modern system has come into place in Scotland, that’s what the Met Office tell me.

    “We are right on the cusp, we are at the strongest possible amber warning, and right on the cusp of potentially becoming a red. That means a high likelihood of a high impact so that could be not just treacherous but frankly dangerous if you travel.”

    TC The Courier
  2. **CLEAR** 04:06 The earlier one vehicle RTC on the #M90 around J5 has now been moved to the side of the road. Carriageway now clear!
  3. Forecasters said the entire east coast, central belt and as far west as Greenock will be hit – while the worst affected areas could see up to 40cm of snow and a wind chill of minus 10C.

    Police Scotland has urged motorists in affected areas not to travel by road, however other transport services are likely to be impacted.

    A red weather warning means a high potential of “widespread damage”, travel and power disruption and risk to life. Met Office advice for such alerts is to “avoid dangerous areas and follow the advice of the emergency services and local authorities”.

    Giving a forecast for Wednesday and Thursday north of the border, Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said:

    “With the snow coming increasingly aligned into bands accompanied by strong winds there is the risk of blizzards and the risk of really significant snow accumulations building up – 5cm to 10cm widely (in the amber area) with 15cm to 25cm locally and the potential for the hills to see 40cm of snowfall building up by the end of Thursday.

    “Maximum temperatures on Wednesday will be barely above freezing and adding in that keen easterly wind it will feel more like minus 10C.”

    Steve Grimmond said:

    “The Met Office is telling us we are facing some extremely challenging conditions over the next few days. We must follow the national advice and the safety instructions issued by Police Scotland. It’s never an easy decision to close schools or any council facility, and this hasn’t been done lightly. We hope parents and other residents will understand and bear with us as we try and keep as many critical services running as possible.

    “Keeping our roads as clear as possible is also vital for our emergency services so they can reach people who need them quickly. In spite of all efforts made to clear snow and grit it seems inevitable that driving conditions will be dangerous. Please put your safety, and the safety of others, first.”
