UK weather: Met Office issues SNOW warning as ‘heavy rain’ risks flooding, travel delays & ‘difficult’ road conditions

The Met Office issued a yellow weather alert covering much of Scotland’s north east on Tuesday

It also issued a yellow weather alert covering much of Scotland’s north east from midnight until midday on Tuesday.

The Met Office warning read: “Rain and snow has the potential to cause disruption in places, mainly to travel, with snow focused over high ground.”

There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded by the downpours.

Floods could also spark train and bus delays – and even some cancellations.

Wet roads will make for tricky driving, with some road closures possible.

And several rural communities in the Highlands could be cut off by flooding.
