Winter roads update

Action Plan for 24hr from 12:00 Sat. 19th Jan.

It will remain dry and cold for a time tonight with long clear spells and a frost forming, but also some areas of mist and fog. Clouding over later though with rain and hill snow pushing east.

Outbreaks of rain and hill snow at first on Sunday will soon clear to leave a cold day with spells of sunshine, but also the risk of a few wintry showers.

Road conditions:

Cloud breaks are expected this evening and overnight but there will also be some cloud around. Road surface temperatures should fall below zero for most places, but confidence is low in their behaviour due to some uncertainty over the cloud amounts. Cloud will tend to increase at the end of the night bringing some occasional rain and drizzle tomorrow morning, which could fall onto frozen roads in a few places before Road surface temperatures slowly rise.
