Weather warning in place as Lincolnshire faces icy conditions

Parts of Lincolnshire were hit with snow today ahead of a weather warning for ice overnight. The Met Office has issued a fresh yellow level warning for ice across the county.

It is in force until midday on Monday, December 4. It comes as weather experts state, a modest thaw of recent snowfall will lead to wet roads and pavements.

With temperatures falling this evening, refreezing of thawed snow will lead to some icy patches on untreated surfaces. As well as this, later in the night rain will push north across much of the area, initially falling onto frozen surfaces.


Snow is not currently forecast for Lincolnshire but the weather warning says: “Some snow is also likely, mainly across the hills and mountains of north Wales and The Peak District. Snow may fall to lower levels for a time tomorrow morning, especially across parts of Wales adding to the risk of ice.”

It’s recommended in the warning that people should plan to leave the house at least five minutes earlier than normal to allow for icy conditions. “Not needing to rush, reduces your risk of accidents, slips, and falls. If you need to make a journey on foot or by bike, try to use pavements along main roads which are likely to be less slippery.

“Give yourself the best chance of avoiding delays by checking road conditions if driving, or bus and train timetables, amending your travel plans if necessary,” is the advice in the warning.
