Icy weather to bring gales and snow showers to Lincoln over weekend

Met Office forecasters are telling Lincoln residents to ‘be aware’ of an icy Arctic blast bringing gales and snow showers over the weekend.

The Met Office has said that a swathe of gale force north to northwesterly winds, accompanied by a band of rain and snow, will move south across much of central and southern Britain on Friday night and Saturday.

The weather warning for Lincolnshire comes into effect from 5pm on Friday, November 20, and runs through until 3pm the following day.

Gusts of at least 50-60 mph are probable, with the strongest winds lasting for only a few hours.

There is a possibility of temporary settling snow even at low levels.

The worst affected areas may see a few centimetres but most places are likely to see little if any lying snow.

Ice on the morning of Saturday, November 21, will be an additional hazard, particularly for higher level routes.

Difficult driving conditions and travel disruption are also possible.
