Cold, with some wintry showers continuing through the night, but with snow becoming confined to the hills.

Remaining windy with a significant wind chill and widespread frost developing.

Icy stretches also developing on untreated surfaces where showers have fallen. Minimum Temperature -2C.


Roads closed due to weather

  • A751 both ways closed due to create a parking area for HGVs between A75 and A77.
  • Adverse weather has closed the A77 North of Cairnryan so HGVs are being stacked on the A751 until the A77 is cleared.

Police Scotland say conditions for travel in the Lothian and Borders and Dumfries and Galloway areas may be hazardous and EXTRA CAUTION should be taken.

Ensure you and your vehicle are adequately prepared for the conditions. Make sure you have sufficient fuel and supplies such as warm clothing, food and water in case you are delayed for several hours. Charge your mobile phone and plan your route as well as alternative routes.
