The Met Office has put yellow ‘be aware’ weather warnings for blizzards are in place from 10pm tonight until Wednesday
Experts revealed that the central highlands will be the worst affected areas of the country.
Sarah Kent, of the Met Office, said: “We are looking at the possibility of 16 inches of snow (40cm) in the north east on Wednesday — and that’s on top of what is due to fall on Tuesday.
“If you add these totals up, you begin to get an idea how extreme conditions are going to be.
“Exposed routes like the A9 are going to prove very difficult. “I feel sorry for the gritting lorry drivers — they are going to face a very tricky job over the next few days.”
