“Accumulating snow is expected to mainly occur above around 200 metres, with a chance of temporary accumulations below this where precipitation becomes temporarily heavy. 2-5cm of snow is expected fairly widely above 250 metres with a chance that a few places within the warning area at lower levels could see a few centimetres settle.

“Accumulations of 10 cm or more are expected to be reserved for above 300 metres.”
