A weather warning continues to remain in place across Renfrewshire with The Met Office issuing a Yellow Warning for Snow & Ice.

A spell of snow, persistent and possibly heavy, is expected during late Wednesday night and early Thursday. The snow is expected to clear east before dawn on Thursday with a minimum temperature of -1 °C.

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. There is some risk of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, especially where showers wash off treatment and on untreated pavements and cycle paths.

A Renfrewshire Council spokesperson said: “Our gritting teams work on shift patterns which mean that we have vehicles out 24 hours a day to keep the roads and pavements as clear as they possibly can.

“We are always looking at the forecast to ensure our drivers are out in advance and during any adverse weather conditions.

“We know it can be frustrating when travelling that the roads can become icy or covered with snow, but our teams work as hard as possible to clear more than 800km of road and 1200km of pavement across Renfrewshire.

“Unfortunately, rain can wash away the grit which has been laid down or fresh snowfall can cause the roads to return to their previous state, which means gritters have to return to priority routes and are unable to move onto more residential areas.

“We will continue to work hard to ensure your safety during the winter weather conditions.”
