Event

The UK Met Office issued yellow weather warnings (lowest on a three-tier scale) for most of Scotland from Monday, February 10, through Wednesday, February 12. Heavy snow and strong winds from Storm Ciara are forecast to bring blizzard conditions across Scotland. Some areas may experience up to 20 cm (8 in) of snow. Wintry driving conditions are anticipated on main highways throughout the region, increasing the risk of accidents and road closures. Some rail service was impacted by the storm over the weekend due to flooding and landslides, but as of Monday evening (local time), ScotRail is not reporting any significant disruptions. Up-to-date service information can be found on the ScotRail website here.

Transportation, business, and power disruptions are possible throughout Scotland over the coming days due to the winter weather. Rail and flight service disruptions, including delays or cancelations, may occur, as well as adverse driving conditions.

Advice

Individuals in Scotland are advised to monitor local weather forecasts, confirm flight and train reservations, prepare for lingering flight and train disruptions (i.e. delays and cancelations), confirm road conditions prior to heading out, and contact their airline or railroad service for more information.
