Gloucestershire County weather update

Gritters will be going out around the county tonight as more snow is expected to fall.
Teams will be going out later this evening treating primary routes – all A and B roads – ahead of the predicted snowfall from around 2am.

Coming from the north, forecasters say the snow will fall during the early hours and again during tomorrow morning accumulating to between 2cm and around 9cms particularly on higher ground.
However, the snow will turn to sleet and then rain by mid-morning turning most of the snow to slush.

Temperatures are expected to fall to just below freezing but will rise over the weekend and into next week.
Tomorrow morning, drivers will need to take care on the roads.

While the council will do all it can to keep roads free of ice, residents are also being urged to do their bit too by helping to clear pavements.

Last year people were worried about liability issues after clearing ice and snow themselves.
But new guidance from the government on gritting your own driveways and pavements is now available on and people are being advised to ensure they’re prepared before bad weather hits.
