Icy blast from the north to continue until Thursday

More snow and freezing conditions on the way

Freezing conditions brought a chilly blast to Moray over the weekend with much more expected this week according to weather experts.

A combination of ice, snow, sleet and wind had been predicted with a yellow warning in place for the entire Grampian region – with much more on the way through until Wednesday this week.

More snow is being predicted overnight tonight that the Met Office warn will cause problems for anyone travelling on Tuesday morning, with as much as four inches of snow expected in parts of Speyside.

The icy conditions have already caused travel issues in the region with the A940 Forres to Grantown road closed yesterday as was the A939 between Tomintoul and Corgarff and the same route between Bridge of Brown and Grantown.

Other routes were only “passable with care” according to police as snow ploughs struggled to cope with the conditions.

A Met Office spokesman warned of more and even worse to come, saying: “The snow showers will continue until the middle of the week with the heaviest arriving on Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

“Monday evening will also see temperatures falling while there will be overnight frost every night this week – we really can see difficulties on the roads on Tuesday morning.”
