Warning of snow and ice for Lincolnshire

The Met Office has issued a ‘yellow - be aware - warning’ of snow and ice for Lincolnshire for today (Thursday, February 5) and tomorrow morning.

The alert covers most of the East Midlands, Yorkshire, Humber, London and South East England areas, plus parts of South West England, the West Midlands and North East England.

A MET Office spokesman said: “A wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow showers are expected through the rest of Thursday leading to icy stretches on untreated surfaces on Thursday night into Friday morning.

“The showers will gradually become lighter and restricted to the far southeast of England overnight.

“However, some heavier showers of sleet and snow are likely to affect parts of the southeast on Thursday afternoon and early evening, particularly Kent and Sussex.

“Snow accumulations of 1-3 cm are possible in places. Due to the showery nature of the flow many places will probably miss the snow.”

He added: “The public should be aware of the potential for disruption to travel.”
