Scotland must brace for whiteout warn weather experts

MUCH of Scotland will face whiteout-conditions next week. A band of heavy snow is set to be swept across the country by gale-force winds.

And some communities have been told to expect power cuts due to a series of lightning strikes expected in the north and west of the country over a 30-hour period. 

For most it is a return to the wild weather of New Year when Storm Dylan and Storm Eleanor crashed in within days of each other.

Parts of the Highlands have remained ice-bound since before Christmas and yesterday images emerged of the Beauly Firth freezing at Muir of Ord.
