Weather warning 11th February, from the Scottish Sun:

Snow warnings are in place until Sunday as Scots brace for the coldest February night in 74 years - with temperatures to plunge as low as -20C.  It comes as parts of the country saw 14 inches of snow with weather warnings in place for three days.

Meanwhile the R&A have said they are cautiously optimistic about having a "full scale championship" in July, while having "robust plans in place for a reduced-capacity or behind-closed-doors model" if that is needed.  Link here.
