Gritting lorries have been out in force to keep the roads clear, particularly in Noord-Holland, Friesland, Flevoland, Overijssel, Drenthe and Limburg. The A6, A&, A28 and A32 are particularly affected, the VID traffic information service said.

It will remain dry for much of Friday but will remain cold and snow or sleet will return later, the KNMI weather bureau said.
