"We will be out assessing sites as soon as possible and will notify you of any route closures if they are required.

"All planned events for the weekend have been postponed, so if you were planning on attending an event please refer to the organiser for new dates."

A weather warning had been in place from 10am on Saturday, February 15 until midnight that night. But the Met Office has extended the warning through to just before midnight on Sunday, January 16.
