The Met Office has issued the following weather warning for the County.

Yellow (be aware) Warning of Snow

Valid from 8.00am Wednesday 28 January to 11.55pm Thursday 29 January 2015

Showers are expected to turn to snow across parts of northern Scotland during Wednesday morning, the risk then transferring to other areas through the rest of the day, continuing overnight and for much of Thursday. 

Across Northern England 3-8 cm could accumulate by Thursday morning, especially over high ground. Over Scotland and Northern Ireland 5-10 cm may fall even at some lower levels, with more than 15 cm possible over higher ground. Strong, gusty winds will lead to drifting and temporary blizzards over high ground, while icy surfaces and lightning pose additional risks in some areas. 

The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.
