Snowy weekend ahead for Lincoln

First snow: Amber warning over the weekend for not only cold weather, but also snow up to 10cm deep in some areas.

After a light dusting overnight, Lincoln could be set to receive more snow over the weekend.

On Friday, February 2, residents woke up to a thin layer of snow that had settled on the ground overnight.

According to the Met Office, Saturday could potentially bring more snow to the city, with forecasts of further snow patches until Monday.

However, with the frosty news comes an amber weather warning to be prepared for not only cold weather, but also snow up to 10cm deep in some areas.

According to the Met Office: “A band of wet weather over Northern Ireland and western Scotland early Saturday will move slowly east and southeastwards across the United Kingdom during the day.

“As it does so it will readily turn to sleet and snow away from western and southwestern coastal areas giving accumulations of 2-5cm in places and 5-10cm widely in the amber warning area.

“The public are advised that this is likely to lead to some travel disruption, and it is recommended to keep up to date with forecasts as the event approaches.”
