Heavy snow was already causing havoc

21 Dec 09 - Heavy snow was already causing havoc on roads across Scotland last night. Aircraft, trains and ferries were also hit by snow and ice yesterday, while the conditions forced Edinburgh Zoo to remain closed.

More snow was forecast over southern Scotland and the Northern and Western Isles today, with up to 2in (5cm) of snow falling in heavy showers, and up to three times that on the hills

The snow is expected to continue until tomorrow, with temperatures plummeting to -5C in Edinburgh tomorrow night and -10C in Inverness and -11C in Aviemore on Christmas Eve.

Inverness Airport was shut for the first time in years yesterday because of heavy snow, and there were cancellations at Edinburgh Airport as staff cleared the runways.

The odds on a white Christmas are narrowing daily. Britain's last official white Christmas was five years ago, with snow in Scotland, the Midlands, north-east and south-west England, and parts of Wales and Northern Ireland.
