Snow was falling across Lewis and Harris tonight (Monday January 15th)  with the Clisham Cam and Barvas Road cam showing snow on the main routes. Heavy, squally showers will turn to sleet, hail and snow for many areas of Scotland later, then parts of Northern Ireland and the far north of England on Monday night.

Snow showers will continue through Tuesday and Tuesday night, although perhaps more of sleet and hail near some coasts. Over the hills, snow will drift in the strong to gale force winds. Travel delays on roads are possible, as are public transport cancellations. There is a chance of power cuts, while services such as mobile phone coverage may be affected. A few rural communities may become cut off. In addition some roads and pavements will turn icy, increasing the chances of accidents or injuries.
