Snow warning issued for Lincolnshire

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow in Lincolnshire on Wednesday and Thursday.

Showers are expected to turn to snow across parts of Lincolnshire — including Lincoln — from Wednesday morning through to Thursday evening.

Forecasters say some 3-8 cm could accumulate by Thursday morning, especially over high ground.

An active cold front is expected to push southeast across the UK during Wednesday, introducing an increasingly cold and unstable air mass.

Showers will become frequent and heavy, falling primarily as snow and driven well inland by strong to gale force northwesterly winds.

Commuters and other travelers seem likely to face a variety of winter hazards, especially later on Wednesday and early on Thursday, although it’s likely that snowfall in some areas may be more patchy.
