A mix of rain and snow is likely at lower levels, with no more than a transient slushy covering on roads below about 100-200m - as, for example, in much of the Central Lowlands.
Around 2-6 cm of snow is more likely above 200-300m elevation, with perhaps 10 cm above 400 m.
A developing area of low pressure is expected to track across Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland on Saturday.
As this runs into colder air, snow is likely to develop, particularly in any heavier bursts of precipitation.
The largest snowfall amounts will be confined to higher ground, with the potential for 10-20 cm of snow above 350 m.
Between 100 m and 350 m elevation, a mixture of rain, sleet and snow is more likely, but there is potential for accumulations of 2-5 cm, and a small chance of 10 cm should the precipitation be heavy enough to maintain snow for a longer duration.
With warm air close by to the south, it may be that places in the south of this warning area end up with mainly rain.
Strong west to northwesterly winds are expected from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday with possible transport disruption.
Gusts of 70mph are possible overnight.
What to expect:
Probably some bus and train services affected, with some journeys taking longer
Delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges likely
Some short term loss of power and other services is possible
It's likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities are affected by spray and/or large waves.
