Winter roads update

Action plan for 24hrs from 12:00 Friday 22nd March

Sunny intervals and showers this afternoon, some heavy and it will turn chillier. Strong to gale-force west to south-westerly winds.

Tonight will have clear intervals and showers. Some of the showers will be heavy and wintry, even to low levels at times. Still windy with a strong westerly wind.

Tomorrow will have sunny intervals and showers, some wintry on high ground. Strong westerly winds will moderate.

Road conditions:

High confidence that it will be a chilly night with RSTs becoming marginal in places.

A risk of wintry showers moving in from the west, these giving slight accumulations of sleet and snow above 200m and making RSTs erratic at times.

Confidence is low on RST minima, due to uncertainty over cloud cover.  Subzero RSTs Lorn East on Saturday morning.
