No mention of the word snow

Having just listened to the BBC forecast at lunchtime, and then the local forecast for Scotland, there was little or no mention of the word snow. Now I realise that 99.8% of people in eastern Scotland are not going to be the slightest bit bothered about the fact that there is going to be quite a lot of snow today above 500 metres today (see attached forecast), but I did think for people’s safety it is worth a mention. Not all hill walkers are that switched on and would be bothered to read these mountain forecasts from the Met Office, and may not even realise just how severe weather can be even in the month of May.
