H&F Council has issued a statement about the weather and with advice to residents.
Snow and sub-zero temperatures are forecast for the whole of today and throughout the weekend until Monday (January 21) with temperatures today dropping to -2°C but feeling like -8°C.
The priority route network was gritted yesterday and overnight in preparation for the snow, and our gritters will be back out today at around 11am to grit priority network routes one and two.
Priority footways and pavements at highest footfall areas, such as main high streets, are also being gritted by Serco workers.
The council's gritting lorries will continue to treat the borough's priority road network during this time but people should take care when out and about, both on the roads and on footpaths, as it will be icy.
One school, Cambridge School, has closed because of a burst water pipe.
The weather could cause disruption to some council services but the council will do all it can to minimise any changes.
The council is prepared for snow and ice, with a full stock pile of 1,000 tonnes of grit and gritters and footpath gritting machines at the ready to help keep H&F’s main roads and main town centres clear, day and night.
Residents are also being called on to do their bit, by taking a common sense approach to helping clear paths and pavements outside their front doors, and those of their neighbours, and by checking in on elderly neighbours and relatives.
