He added the “risks of snow [are] intensifying for the northern regions”, before sweeping “beyond Scotland” and “accumulating within Scotland itself”.
On Tuesday there will be between one and five centimeters of snow in parts of north-west Scotland before the forecast climbs to between 10 and 15 centimeters on Wednesday across a wider part of western Scotland.
On Thursday, more of Scotland will brace for snowfall, which among the highest regions will be over 30cm deep.
This will decrease over the weekend and early next week, before making a comeback across the UK by Thursday February 16.
By Sunday February 20, most of the UK will see patches of snow spreading all the way down the east coast to the capital.
