There could be more snow on the way across North Devon this weekend as Met Office issues warning.

A further weather warning has been issued for snow and ice this weekend.

It comes after snow fell across parts of North Devon and Exmoor earlier this week.

From 3am on Saturday, up to 2-4cm of snow are likely in places above 200m and on the moors

There will be a band of rain, sleet and snow and temperatures are expected to drop.

And Devon County Council’s snow wardens have been put on standby for the coldest spell so far this winter.

Road surface temperatures are set to plummet below -5 C overnight tonight (Friday) and are not expected to rise above freezing before 9am tomorrow.

DCC is advising people to take extreme care if travelling tomorrow morning, particularly on untreated roads.

Gritters will be treating around 1,700 miles of the precautionary salting network across the county from 3pm this afternoon and again in the early hours.

Although Sunday is forecast to be drier, current indications are that temperatures may remain cold for the next ten days.

Routes on the secondary salting network will be treated on Sunday morning from around 10am.

Around 280 volunteer snow wardens in towns and parishes across the county have also been alerted that they may need to engage their self-help plans in their local communities to support the council’s efforts in the coming days.

Councillor Stuart Hughes, Devon County Council cabinet member for highway management, said: “This weekend’s temperatures are expected to be the coldest we’ve had so far this winter, and road surface temperatures will drop below freezing across all areas of the county again this evening.

“Roads are still wet and there may be water run-off from fields, particularly on more minor roads, which could lead to icy patches.

“Remember that ice may even form on treated roads, so I would urge everyone to take extra care wherever they are travelling, particularly overnight.

“Our highways teams are prepared for the possibility of snow and ice and gritters will be out throughout the weekend and if it is followed by a prolonged cold spell, as the forecast is indicating, our snow wardens will be able to support on their priority routes.

“Every effort is always made to keep our highways as clear as possible to keep Devon moving.”
