Snow day #2: UPDATED

AN amber warning for snow has been extended in the east of the region until 10 am on Friday.

It comes as Dumfries and Galloway Council said there are snow drifts as deep as 12 foot in some areas.

Their snowploughs are out and about but strong winds are hampering operations.

And police are warning drivers to take care when out and about.

They say that while all major roads are currently passable “with care”, that motorists should slow down and allow extra time for journeys.

Meanwhile, driving conditions on the M74 to the north of of the region are said to “remain challenging” and there are pockets of snow reported on the A75.

Most schools remain closed for a second day, but the education authority are expecting to reopen them tomorrow.

Although the forecast is better for the weekend, the snow is expected to last until next Tuesday.
