chester gritting

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours shows bands of rain, sleet and snow coupled with a sudden drop in temperature. Our gritters are out in force this afternoon, however this weather will create challenging driving conditions in some areas. The rain and sudden low temperatures will potentially reduce the effectiveness of our gritting operations on some stretches of road.

Bands of rain and sleet are expected to pass through during the afternoon, following this, temperatures in the southern part of the borough are expected to fall from +2 degrees C to -1.5 degrees C in the very early evening.

Further gritting will be carried out on primary routes as overnight temperatures are expected to fall as low as -3 degrees C, with the added prospect of further rain, sleet and snow expected to fall between 8pm this evening and 6am in the morning.

Please take care over the next 24 hours
