Winter roads update

Action Plan for 24hrs from 12:00 Mon 21st Jan.

This afternoon will be blustery and cold with outbreaks of rain and hill snow spreading from the west. Fresh to strong southerly winds.

Rain and hill snow will cross from the west this evening, clearing to the east before midnight.

Thereafter, expect a mix of clearer intervals and hail, sleet and snow showers. Strong winds easing.

Another cold day, with a further mix of sunny spells and showers of hail, sleet and snow.

One or two of the showers could be sharp before tending to ease later in the day.

Road conditions:

Following outbreaks of rain this evening with some hill sleet/snow mixed-in, RSTs are expected to fall away overnight, dropping below zero quite widely.

However, some wintry showers (a mix of hail, sleet and snow showers) are expected overnight, too, making the RSTs erratic. Low confidence on the min RSTs.
