Local News
Snow, Rain and hail are forecast for the Côtes d'Armor

Cold and snow showers or hail make the traffic conditions difficult Thursday 4th April and it should still be the case for two days.

It has been cold these last few nights in Brittany and it is not finished. The rain sometimes turns into snow, mixed snow or hail , making traffic conditions difficult , especially in Côtes d’Armor Thursday 4th April, 2019.

The evenings and the mornings are particularly cold since a few days.

Snow showers on Wednesday morning in northern Finistère and southern Côtes d’Armor and hail in the evening sometimes caused some road trips.

Slippery roads

The gendarmes of Côtes d’Armor issued a warning to vigilance on the Facebook page .

“Caution on the roads at nightfall! Snow and hail reduce visibility and make the roadway slippery. ”

Proof in support, the gendarmes posted a photo where we see the snow crashing on the windshield of their vehicle.

The gendarmes have also had to go several times to accidents caused by a speed unsuited to traffic conditions.

“Surprised by the weather conditions, this motorist was the victim of a road trip without gravity fortunately. So be careful, the roads may be slippery in the coming days. Remember to adjust your speed! ”
