Moray residents are being warned to expect continued snowfalls this weekend with the Met Office issuing new alerts over “cold and unstable” conditions.
Temperatures as low as -10deg are expected in Speyside while the Moray and Aberdeenshire coastal areas are once again warned to expect snow showers, some heavy and sustained.
Forecasters say that parts of Moray can expect up to four inches of snow in higher areas while even in lower regions up to two inches of snow should be expected in localised areas.
The yellow ‘be aware’ warning will remain in place until Sunday.
While motorists are being warned to expect snow and ice on Moray’s roads, Scotrail say that trains should run as normal this weekend.
Sport has already been hit with Elgin City forced yet again to cancel their home game against Clyde today. Four Highland League games have been postponed so far – including the game at Keith where the pitch is snowbound. Inspections are expected at most other Highland League grounds this morning with a spokesman for Lossiemouth FC saying last night that at that point their pitch was not playable.
