Snow and ice update – Ludlow returns to normal. Wednesday (updated 12.00pm) #ludlowisopen

Morning and it’s a better one. Ludlow is returning to normal today and we are expecting all services to be open. The market is back in operation and pavements in the town centre have been cleared. Buses are expected to operate near normally. Ludlow schools are open. Some rural schools are closed or on limited hours. Snow and ice will remain on side streets and pavements, where it may still be very slippery. Car parks have yet to be cleared. Some cold temperatures between 7am and 9am and around teatime may lead to refreezing. There is a possibility of sleet this evening.

Snow and ice update for Ludlow – roads, schools, buses and more. Tuesday (updated 11.00am)

The weather is expected to improve. I’ll provide updates tomorrow but we are expecting just about everything to be operating normally. But beware early morning ice from the half melted snow.

Morning. It’s been a bitterly cold night with temperatures expected to plummet to as low as -12C by 8am. All schools in the area remain closed. Roads and pavements are often hazardous. Buses will try to serve as many areas as they can but both the 701 and 722 are having difficulties accessing some streets. Side streets are gradually being cleared by gritters and tractors. Shropshire Council teams will work on town centre paths today. More updates as they come in and let me know if you have information the public needs to know. Take care but enjoy the snow if you can.
