Following on from the American #Snowmageddon. (Which in all fairness never amounted to the extreme weather they were expecting.) The Met Office issued the whole of Scotland with a yellow warning from 8am this morning until midnight tonight.

Glasgow and Scotland are bracing themselves for the worst of this year’s winter weather.

A blanket yellow warning means that Scottish civilisation should prepare for the onslaught of snow showers becoming more and more frequent as the day goes on.

Some places in the north of Scotland can expect to receive nearly 15 centimetres of snow and as the day progresses the Central Belt and the south of Scotland will bear the full brunt of the harsh weather with the Met Office warning “travel disruption is expected”.

Ice, lightning, snow drifts and gale force winds are a strong possibility.

A statement from police said: “Police Scotland are advising that the Met Office has issued a warning for snow throughout Wednesday and Thursday, and that conditions for travel may be hazardous and that extra caution should be exercised.”
