The Chief Forecaster’s assessment said: “Road surface temperatures will fall widely below freezing on Friday evening and overnight into Saturday, leading to a risk of ice on untreated surfaces.

“This will be exacerbated by showers in places, more especially across Scotland where 2-5 cm fresh snowfall may accumulate above 150m with up to 10 cm settling above 300 m.”

There are also predictions in place for snow in the county from Tuesday, February 3.

Duckworth Land Rover, which has bases in Market Rasen and Boston, is offering to loan out four-wheel drive vehicles to police and essential health services should extreme weather hit.

The company’s managing director Ben Duckworth said: “The company has been serving customers in this county for several decades. All of our staff live in this community and we all have family, friends and neighbours we want to ensure are safe.

“If there are communities stranded as a result of extreme weather we want to do everything we can to help.”
