Full list of school closures ahead of Storm Eunice ‘blizzards’


Scotland is expected to be hit by Storm Eunice throughout tomorrow, according to forecasters.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow from 3am tomorrow morning until 6pm that evening.

Forecasters have anticipated blizzards to hit large parts of the country, with up to 20cm of snowfall expected in some parts.

Angus, Dundee, Fife, Aberdeenshire, Highland, Edinburgh and Glasgow are among the areas set to be affected by the conditions.

A yellow weather warning for snow is in place for most of Scotland tomorrow

The Met Office weather warning reads: “Snow, heavy in places, is likely to develop on the northern side of Storm Eunice as it moves across the UK on Friday.

“Not all areas within the warning area are expected to see snow. However, some places may see around 5cm of snow at low levels away from coasts.

“Accumulations are expected to be significantly higher over hills, with 10cm, possibly 20cm, above around 300 to 400m.

“Strong winds occurring at the same time may lead to very poor visibility, blizzard conditions and drifting of lying snow.”

The Scottish Government held emergency talks on Thursday about its response to the adverse weather conditions.

Storm Eunice’s arrival comes a day after Scotland was battered by winds of up to 90mph due to Storm Dudley.

The storm on Wednesday caused major disruption to transport and other essential services throughout yesterday and this morning.
