Gritting teams at Notts County Council will be keeping a close eye on the weather over the weekend and next week.
With overnight temperatures predicted to fall below freezing next week, the county’s gritters aren’t taking anything for granted.
Last year the first severe weather hit Notts on 9th January.
And from then on, the gritters were kept busy until April.
Residents can get up-to-date information about the council’s services during severe weather by checking the website at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk, following them on Twitter or Facebook, calling 0300 500 8080 or checking the local radio and press.
