Weather forecaster WX Charts suggests that Scottish highlands will be covered with snow till February 11. By 6pm on February 11, charts show there could be as much as 8 inches (22cm) of snow forecast to fall in Inverness and the Highlands.

Forecasters predict more snow will fall by 6am on February 12, with up to 13 inches (34cm) expected to fall across the Highlands.

The forecaster also predicts extreme blizzard conditions affecting swathes of Scotland on Saturday and Sunday with possibilities of up to six inches of snow in the hardest hit north-western regions.

While Scotland will see snow throughout February, the rest of the UK is expected to remain without any snow.

This comes after the Met Office issued two yellow warnings for snow from 5pm on Saturday (February 5) to 3pm on February 6.

The Met Office warned heavy snow showers may lead to some travel disruption, especially over high routes.

The forecaster said some roads and railways will be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

In their warning, the Met Office said: “Frequent and occasionally heavy snow showers are expected on Saturday night and Sunday, and combined with strong westerly winds will lead to blizzard conditions and drifting snow on higher routes across Highland.

“Accumulations of 2 to 5cm are possible in places, with 10 to 15cm accumulating on routes above 300 metres.
