Dip in temperatures tonight so gritters will be out from 3.30pm presalting priority routes and check again at 6am tomorrow #sbctravel
Scottish Borders Council plans to grit roads in the Borders from 3:30pm today.
The A66 is closed both ways closed due to an overturned lorry and recovery work between A685 / B6276 New Road (Brough) and A6 Kemplay Bank / A686 Carleton Avenue (Kemplay Bank Roundabout, Penrith).
The overnight force of Storm Gertrude has had little impact across Dumfries and Galloway.
The Met Office have cancelled the Yellow warning (be aware) for rain that was issued yesterday.
River levels across the region peaked overnight but have since dropped and remain at a safe and steady level.
Warnings for 70mph winds are still in place until this evening and commuters should drive accordingly to the weather.
The railway between Whitehaven and Workington is closed due to the sea wall being breached a Parton.
The sea wall, which supports and protects the railway, and around 700 yards of ballast – the heavy stone which provides the foundations for the railway track – were damaged by high tides as Storm Jonas hit the Cumbrian coastline.
Ian Joslin from Network Rail said:
Our structural experts are on site assessing the damage to the sea wall and track caused by yesterday’s storm but are at the mercy of the tides for some parts of the assessment.
Once the extent of the damage is clear we will be able to plan the repairs so we can safely re-open the line to passengers as quickly as possible.
The A781 is now closed between A780 Buccleuch Street and Dockhead in Dumfries due to flooding.

The A6 is now also closed between Beezon Road Kendal and Blackhall Road Cumbria.
The A6 at Eamont bridge has been closed for some time due to structural damage.

The A66 between A685 Broughand and A6108 Middleton Tyas is closed in both directions due to high winds.

Cumbria's mountain rescue teams helped out around the country when Storm Desmond and Storm Frank hit last December.
But they were also badly affected by the floods, with the estimated cost to the Lake District's mountain rescue teams around £20,000.
Matthew Taylor has this report:
Joan McAlpine MSP has said rail commuters will react with dismay to news that the Lamington Viaduct will remain closed until March.
She has asked the train operators to reconsider their decision to run the West Coast mainline through Dumfries without stopping there.
The viaduct has been closed since December due to structural damage following the impact of Storm Desmond. The diversions in place add an extra 1 hour onto journey times on the West Coast mainline.
Dumfries and Galloway is already very poorly served by rail services, and Virgin’s route alternations appear to be having a negative impact on this region. While safety has to come first, I am concerned that this extended closure will cause havoc for Dumfriesshire commuters."
