Dundee and Tayside is braced for a freezing cold day with snow “very likely”.

The Met Office has placed the whole area under a yellow ‘be alert’ warning for the white stuff up until 3pm today.

While the snowfall is not likely to have a big impact on travel, it will feel bitterly cold. Up to 3cm of snow could settle on the ground.

The snow is expected between 11am and 12pm in Dundee with the temperature feeling as cold as -4C.

The whole of Dundee, Tayside and Fife is under a weather warning.

Those 100m above sea level will bear the brunt of the snow with 2-5cm likely, while those above 250m could have to contend with accumulations of 10-15cm.

A statement on the Met Ofice website read: “A spell of snow is expected across parts of Scotland and the northern half of England on Friday.

“A separate amber warning is in force for parts of northern England.

“Some roads and railways will be affected leading to longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some delays to air travel are also expected.

“This is an update to pull the northern extent of the warning further north across Scotland.”
