Imogen blasts past Moray but beware underfoot conditions

Icy roads – but Moray misses Imogen’s blast

WHILE MUCH OF the country is being warned of yet another ‘named’ storm bringing high winds and rain into the start of the week, for Moray the return of freezing temperatures is the issue.

Storm Imogen will, according to forecasters, batter the south as people head for work on Monday morning with winds of up to 80mph and heavy rain.

For once the north of Scotland would appear to be escaping Imogen’s wrath – although parts of the south west may feel the force.

For Moray and Aberdeenshire the danger for motorists will be ice – in particular on untreated surfaces on Sunday evening and into Monday morning.

“As winds ease and the skies clear during Sunday evening, temperatures will fall with ice readily forming on untreated surfaces,” the Met Office warns in their latest Yellow alert, which adds: “Some wintry showers are still possible overnight – but mainly in the west of the area, and these could give a few cm of snow above 300m – but adding to the ice risk at lower levels.”

The Yellow warning is valid until 9am on Monday morning.
