Residents in Lincoln are being warned to prepare for icy conditions as bad weather hits the county this evening.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for ice, valid from 4pm on Monday, February 27 until 10am on Tuesday, February 28.

Ice is expected to form overnight leading to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.

The Met Office’s chief forecaster said: “Showers will affect many parts of the UK during Monday, with some continuing overnight and into Tuesday morning, when temperatures will also fall below zero in some areas, bringing a risk of ice.

“The showers will fall as rain, sleet and hail at low levels, but as snow over hills, where several centimetres of snow may accumulate.”
