Somerset County Council Winter update - 30 Jan 12

Temperatures will drop to around -5.5 tonight and fall to -8 on Wednesday and Thursday nights. It is unsure if the temperature will recover during the daytime.

It is not forecast for any more snow or heavy rain over the next few days. We will treat the network starting at 3pm today (30/1/12) and as there is a lot of wet roads we will proactively treat the secondary network at the same time in advance of ice forming.

Please drive carefully as salt is only effective as a de-icer to -8 so there may still be ice out there.
Regards

SCC Group Manager Operations
