Weather warning as snow forecast to batter Lincolnshire again

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings of snow and ice for Lincolnshire and across the UK as more snow is expected to cause disruption across the country.

Showers are expected through this afternoon and much of Saturday night. These will fall as sleet and snow at times, especially in heavier showers.

Forecasters say accumulations of several centimetres may occur in places leading to difficult driving conditions and the additional hazard of ice.

Many areas will see very little snow accumulation, but as much as 2 to 5 cm is expected over higher ground and perhaps as much as 10 cm very locally.

The showers will slowly die out from the south of the region after midnight but will leave a legacy of icy patches.

Lincolnshire County Council’s gritting crews will be out on their routes countywide at 6pm and again at 3am.

The first snow on Boxing Day caused significant disruption in Lincolnshire, with more than 35 weather related traffic incidents attended.

Lincolnshire Police continue to advise people not to drive in the snowy conditions if possible.
