Still more snowy and icy weather to come.

Snow levels in Braemar have now reached more than 2ft – breaking all previous local records.

Keen weather watcher Chris Booth has measured 27.5ins (70cms) of snow in the Deeside village, which would exceed an unofficial record of 26.7ins (68cm) from 20 years ago.

Mr Booth, who has been documenting the snowfall in the area for numerous years, said temperatures dropped to as low as -14c in the area last night.

He said: “This is the worst I have ever seen it.

“I know everybody talks about 2010 but this dwarfs 2010 by quite a bit. It is just the sheer amount of snow.

“It has just been absolutely crazy.”

Weather warning extended

A yellow weather warning for snow along the east coast and through Orkney and Shetland is currently in place, however, the Met Office has warned that further disruption and delays are expected as snow and ice are to continue throughout Thursday and Friday.

The current weather warning was due to expire on Wednesday evening, however, forecasters are anticipating further snowy and icy weather to come.
