The Met Office said: “Spells of hill snow will spread northwards across central and northern England into Scotland during Tuesday, this snow becoming confined to areas north of the Central Belt of Scotland during the evening.

“Between 2 to 5 cm snow is expected to accumulate quite widely above 200 m with 10 to 20 cm likely in some higher areas, particularly in parts of the Southern Uplands and Highlands.

“Strong winds accompanying the snow will cause blizzards with drifting and poor visibility in places, especially over the highest routes.”
