Thursday, 12 January 2017

LIMAVADY motorists are being urged to take care after a severe weather warning was issued for the next few days. PSNI Limavady has advised motorists to be aware of the potential for disruption to transport due to lying and blowing snow after the Met Office released a yellow weather warning this week.
Via its Facebook page, officers advised: "Very bad weather is forecast for the next few days. Please bear this in mind when planning your journeys, have an alternate route planned. Drive safe."
Snow showers are expected to develop across Northern Ireland from Wednesday evening, lasting into Friday. These, combined with strong winds, could lead to very poor travel conditions.
The Met Office stated that: 'Cold winds from the Arctic and Canada will sweep in on Wednesday evening and wind gusts of up to 55mph are expected in exposed coastal areas and on hills in association with snow showers, leading to temporary blizzard conditions.
