WEATHER: Rest of Sunday

Grasmere Winter RAY HUTCHEON

The wintry band of rain is moving in from southwest. As it does so it will turn increasingly to snow as we move through the afternoon. Although turning patchy there will be some heavy pulses, accompanied by a strong and cold east wind.

The greatest risk of disruption is over higher routes, where up to 10cm of snow could settle by the end of the day. There could be accumulations at lowers levels of up to 5cm but here it will be a mixture of rain, sleet and snow.

After midnight conditions improve from the north but as skies clear and temperatures hover around freezing ICE could be a problem for sideroads and footpaths into the early hours.

Monday is a much better day - drier and brighter but cold and windy.
