Warning for ice issued as temperatures drop across Lincolnshire

A Met Office yellow weather warning has been issued for severe ice in Lincolnshire this weekend, as the county recovers from the gales of Storm Gertrude.

Wintery showers are expected to fall over Friday night in Lincolnshire and temperatures are expected to fall sharply by just after midnight on Saturday, January 30.

The Met Office warning with a ‘be aware’ status predicts that ice will form on untreated roads and pavements until around 10am.

The chief forecasters assessment is: “A cold front will clear from northern England, the north Midlands and north Wales during Friday evening, followed by clearing skies and air cold enough to allow surfaces to freeze.

“In addition, scattered showers of rain, sleet and hill snow will may cause some wash-off of any road treatments already applied.

“The chance of disruption will gradually diminish on Saturday morning as temperatures start to rise, although with wintry showers likely to continue.”
