Winter Alert : Planned Winter Maintenance Action on Sunday 18th November 2018.

Effective: 18 Nov 2018

Based on the most recent weather forecast we plan to carry out precautionary gritting on the 1000'+ routes from Allendale and Otterburn at 05:00 on Sunday 18th November as RST's are expected to be marginal.

Road conditions:-
Tonight will be cold, with RST's falling away under largely clear skies.

Short term forecast:-
Cloud will break up to give some sunshine this afternoon, but some cloud will persist in places, especially over the hills.
Tonight will be dry with clear spells, but also some areas of misty low cloud, these mostly over the hills. A chillier night than last night.
Tomorrow will be dry with spells of sunshine, along with some areas of cloud, these mostly over the hills. A chilly easterly breeze.

Should conditions change significantly we will issue another alert to inform you of our planned action. Be aware of possible freezing conditions and drive with care.

Any problem areas should be reported to our Customer Services Centre on 0345 600 6400 or you can report via www.northumberland.gov.uk/winter which will then be logged directly on our Severe Weather system and appropriate action will be taken.
