Dundee City Council has issued a statement on the prospect of school closures tomorrow.
Schools in Perth and Kinross, Fife and Angus will remain closed tomorrow as the “Beast from the East” takes hold of the UK after moving in from Siberia.
A red warning has been issued by the Met Office for Tayside and Fife, which will be in effect until 10am tomorrow.
But Dundee City Council says it will not make an announcement until tomorrow.
The council tweeted: “Gritting efforts will continue tonight and into tomorrow (Thursday) morning.
“A decision about schools will be taken and communicated as early as possible on Thursday morning following a thorough assessment of road and weather conditions.
“Thank you for your patience.”
