Amber alert for heavy snow in Lincolnshire on Sunday

This story is over

Met Office forecasters say the western half of Lincolnshire will see heavy snow on Sunday.

Some 10cm of snow look likely quite widely within the warning area, with 15-20 cm in places.

Saturday temperatures won’t budge over 3°C across most of the county, with -2°C forecast overnight into Sunday, when highs of no more than 1°C are expected.

The weather alert in Wales, the Midlands and Northern England has now been upgraded to amber – meaning travel disruption is likely.

The Met Office says there is increasing certainty in the track and location of the heaviest snows and Lincoln is in the affected area.
