Weather Warning - Snow

Alert message sent 15/03/2019 11:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Scottish Borders Council

Good morning Citizen

The Met Office have issued a Yellow be aware weather warning for the Scottish Borders for Snow valid from 4am till 9pm on Saturday 16th March.

The Borders will see a mix of rain and snow during the day on Saturday with snow more likely on higher ground above 200m. It will be slow to clear the Borders area with it turning drier and colder again from 9pm tomorrow night.

You might find snow down to all levels overnight tonight but for the majority of us that will turn to rain during the day. However snow may accumulate on the higher ground and routes like the A68, A7 and A703 to Edinburgh may be affected with the potential for some transport disruption.

For further information see the Met office website

Information on the trunk road network can be found on the Traffic Scotland website
