- Weather forecast - The Met Office provides regular forecasts and warnings for the East Midlands.
- Information on driving in winter weather conditions can be found on the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) website.
- Local schools - Bad weather may result in some schools being closed. For the latest information on school closures, please listen to your local radio station or check the DCC Snow Info page.
