Winter Alert : Planned winter service action on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th December 2019

Effective: 14 Dec 2019 to 15 Dec 2019

Based on the most recent weather forecast we plan to carry out precautionary gritting on all Northumberland primary routes from 16:00 on Saturday 14th December and again from 04:00 on Sunday 15th. In addition the secondary routes on high ground will be treated on Sunday morning.

A windy, cold and unsettled afternoon with scattered showers, wintry in nature with hail, sleet and some snow accumulations on higher ground. Fresh south-westerly winds.
Some clear spells in places this evening but showers of sleet and snow are possible in places through the night, although some areas may remain dry. Chilly.

A chance of a few wintry showers early tomorrow morning but thereafter it will be a generally fine day with spells of sunshine and patchy cloud. Another breezy day.

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 Drivers are advised to be aware of road conditions and to drive with due care and attention, particularly on untreated roads. Please only make a journey if it is absolutely necessary.
