The public have been advised to exercise extreme caution and to pay attention to local conditions, with heavy snowfall and strong winds likely to continue until well into Friday evening.

Although the public safety notice has been lifted, the public have also been urged not to get behind the wheel unless absolutely necessary, with treacherous road conditions reported throughout the country and several routes proving impassable as a result of ice and snow.
