One down, one to go . . . and snow

Storm Dudley passed through the region without too much damage - except for some fallen trees near Moffat.

Early reports indicate, despite the strong winds last night, Dumfries and Galloway has been left pretty unscathed.

However, an emergency road closure is in place on the A708, Moffat to Selkirk road, near the Cragieburn Traffic Lights, due to a fallen tree.

Dumfries and Galloway Council say it will be removed today.

Another fallen tree was also reported on the West Coast Mainline near Beattock.

But the region is bracing itself for the arrival of Storm Eunice tomorrow, which is expected to bring snow too. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for gusty winds locally on Friday afternoon and are forecasting between 5-20 cm of snow for the region.
