Ice to cause difficult driving conditions for motorists in Lincolnshire

Parts of Lincolnshire are being warned to prepare for potentially hazardous driving conditions on untreated surfaces as an icy blast hits the county this evening.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for ice valid from 6pm 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.

Areas affected include the north and west of the county, with the Lincolnshire coast south of Mablethorpe not in the warning zone.

Towns such as Boston, Spalding and Grantham should avoid any serious disruption.

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.”
