TEMPERATURES are falling in Herefordshire, and the gritters are heading out.

All the county's priority routes will be treated from 3.30pm.

It will be cold and dry overnight, and clear skies mean temperatures will fall rapidly after sunset, according to the Met Office.

Expect frost and a few fog patches. Minimum temperature -2C.

There will be a frosty start to Monday, but there will be plenty of sunshine, which will hopefully give sodden areas of the county a chance to dry out a little (a flood alert is still in place for the river Lugg, south of Leominster).
