Winter Alert : Planned Winter Services Actions from 16:00hrs on Tuesday 31st March 2015

Effective: 31 Mar 2015 to 1 Apr 2015

Based on the most recent weather forecast we plan to carry out precautionary gritting on all routes commencing at 16:00hrs on Tuesday 31st March 2015 and then at 05:00hrs on Wednesday 1st April on the following routes:

• Allendale
• Bearl 4
• Haltwhistle 1
• Otterburn 1
• Otterburn 2
• Rothbury 1
• Rothbury 2

Should conditions change significantly we will issue another alert to inform you of our planned action.

In continuing cold weather conditions, when widespread ice is forecast, and as resources become available, we will progressively start gritting:
• main footpaths and car parks in town centres
• busy urban shopping areas
• important pedestrian links
• footpaths next to large schools

Sunny spells and scattered blustery showers throughout this afternoon. The showers will be a mix of rain, sleet, hail and also wet snow across the higher routes.

This evening and overnight should see a reduction in the showers, but a few may continue throughout the night, especially in the west where the showers are expected to be more wintry. Snow is unlikely to accumulate during the daytime hours however after dusk snow may accumulate in places. Icy patches are possible during the sub-zero periods, especially where any late showers occur, or where any snow accumulates. Minimum RST’s are forecast to be around MS03 on the highest routes and marginal on the coast


Be aware of possible freezing conditions and drive with care.

Any problem areas should be reported to our Customer Services Centre on 0845 600 6400 or you can report via www.northumberland.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=703 which will then be logged directly on our Severe Weather system and appropriate action will be taken
