Severe Weather Warning!

The school received this weather warning from Stirling Council today, please check for updates / schools affected on Stirling Council website and school website.
Hopefully all will be ok tomorrow and we can still go on our Pantomime trip however please be aware if the weather is too severe we will not transport children by bus and the event would need to be cancelled. Fingers crossed this doesn’t happen!
Weather update – Snow warning for Thursday
Today will be a generally dry cold day with frost developing quickly
tonight. There will continue to be some wintry showers over exposed
north and eastern coastal areas during today.
In the early hours of Thursday a frontal system will move in from the
west bringing rain sleet and snow to much of Scotland, snow is expected
over higher ground where 5-10cm is possible above 200 metres, with
locally 10-15cm possible above 400m.  At lower levels away from western
coastal areas temporary accumulations of up to a few centimetres are
possible, most likely over central and eastern Scotland. There will also
be an increased ice risk where sleet and rain fall on already frozen
surfaces. The rain and snow will clear away later on Thursday with a
return to drier frosty conditions for most of Scotland but again with
wintry showers on north and east coastal areas. This broad picture will
continue over the weekend with overnight frost and some wintry showers
mainly in the north and east. There are currently no indications of
further prolonged periods of snow over the weekend.
Bearing in mind that this spell of sleet and snow will move into the
west of Scotland between 0300 and 0600 and the east of the country from
0600 to 0900 giving the potential of some more significant impacts due
to the increased traffic over the morning rush hour we have issued an
Amber Snow warning for the areas most likely to see impacts from this
weather system. A Yellow snow warning covers most of the remainder of
Scotland with the exception of the western seaboard, the Western Isles
and Shetland. Full details of the warnings can be found on our web site
