Those travelling in Lincoln and the surrounding areas this morning are being warned of potential snow and ice patches.

The chief forecaster’s warning reads:

“Accumulations of 0-2 cm of snow are likely in places at low levels, but locally 2-5 cm over hills and where showers become aligned in bands in the northeasterly flow.

“Please be aware of the potential for difficult travelling condition”s.

Ice will also be a hazard on untreated surfaces, particularly between showers overnight, with those areas just inland from the coasts of eastern and southeast England at particular risk as the showers will fall as a wintry mix.
