Snow and ice alerts remain but Moray rail services unaffected

Motorists warned to take care as snow falls over ice.

Weather experts are continuing to warn Moray residents to take great care in particular when travelling as snow and ice alerts remain in place.

Almost the entire country has been flagged as under threat from further snow showers and icy road surfaces today, with large parts of Moray once again expected to experience heavy snow in particular on higher levels.

The Met Office have an Amber warning for snow active throughout today with the lesser Yellow warning in place for Thursday, although that no longer includes the Grampian region.

Anyone planning on travelling south by either road or rail is being warned to check before their departure as national rail services have once again been seriously disrupted in particular on the west coast.

While the main route south on the A9 has remained open there has been a number of accidents with vehicles leaving the road after losing control on the icy conditions.

However, there are no issues being reported this morning by Scotrail with services between Inverness and Aberdeen reported to be running as normal.

Tomintoul Primary School will remain closed today because of heavy and drifting snowfalls – updated information on schools in the region is available online.
