Heavy snow is expected to start between 4am and 5am on Friday, December 29th and is due to last for 4-5 hours. This could be followed with some lighter snow/sleet before rain begins to fall in the early to mid-afternoon.
Snow is predicted to fall to a depth of between 5-10 cm. Lancashire County Council will have gritting vehicles operational from midnight tonight and many of the vehicles will be fitted with snowploughs.
The vehicles will work throughout the night and into the morning, depending on conditions and requirements.
We will endeavour to carry out local waste collections as usual but this may depend on the weather conditions.
