This week, and next week, I am the one who is updating the Shetland News website, so until Monday 13th December I will copy all school/college closure notices here in case any of you are not on the Shetland News mailing list.

It has been possible for some time now to sign up to a free text message and email service with regards to Shetland ferry information updates.

It would seem logical to implement a similar scheme with regards to school closure information.

I would assume texts can also be sent to landlines as per from mobile phones.

This would allow anyone signed up to receive instant information as soon as official decisions are made.

The email address hans@shetland-news.co.uk is still being collected and forwarded to Pete Bevington who is doing the stories just now.

No reason why it should have bounced, that I am aware of.

If you send it to me at graeme@force10.co.uk then I can forward it, but make sure you mark it for forwarding to Hans.

Hans will be updating the Shetland News website for the next few days, so don't expect extra info here as I don't think he has a Shetlink account.

was surprised to see there was no school closures today... considering the road conditions are worse than when they did close the schools last week. I put mine in... but if it starts to snow ill be going and taking home early.

As i said before but all would know by now: ALL Schools in Shetland are OPEN today, this includes the Eric Gray Resource Centre. Cancellations: Youth Clubs throughout Shetland are CLOSED today due to the weather conditions. There is no other cancellations in Shetland today as of yet. Local weather forecast: Snow is expected throughout the day, atleast up until 3:00pm where it should clear up and may just be cloudy. Snow could come back again throughout the night but may not last for too long. Either way, a cold night tonight. WEATHER WARNING: A weather warning is out for Shetland for icy roads over tonight. Temperatures could drop below freezing again tonight to give us a very cold and frosty start tomorrow morning. Snow could carry on throughout the week, but turning more wet and could turn to sleet and then rain from Wednesday onwards. Temperatures could rise over the week becoming more mild but still cold. Brae Road & Weather Report: About 10 minutes ago it started snowing heavily in Brae and still is.

Temperatures are well below freezing across Shetland.
I doubt they will even reach zero today.
