Drivers on the Monday morning commute are being warned of hazardous conditions by weather forecasters.Advertisement
Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing once more as a warning of ice has been issued.
Gritting crews will be out once more to keep the county’s highways moving.
The chief forecaster for the Met Office said: “A complex set of frontal systems will be pushing areas of precipitation into Scotland and parts of northern England. Surfaces will be below zero, so this means the risk of ice, as well as localised smaller amounts of snowfall. Precipitation should tend to fade away again during Monday.
“However the main hazard looks like being ice, as the precipitation falls onto sub-zero surfaces.
“Please be aware of the potential for tricky winter driving conditions.”
Preston has been blanketed in a thin layer of snow since Saturday afternoon.
