Forecasters are predicting more snowfall for Lincolnshire with the Met Office issuing a Yellow Weather Warning for Tuesday night and Wednesday.

The Met Office say snow showers will continue to affect the midlands on Tuesday evening, overnight and into Wednesday morning, bringing 1-2 cm of snow and 3-5cm on higher ground.

In addition, icy patches may affect some surfaces where snow has melted during Tuesday.

At the weekend motorists endured terrible conditions after heavy snowfall on Friday night.

Wind drifting in from fields brought deep snow on the roads around the Louth area. At Belchford, on the A153 road to Horncastle, several motorists became stranded on Saturday morning before farmers arrived on tractors to tow cars to safety.

And more snow may be on the way tonight and tomorrow.

Tuesday night looks likely to bring scattered light wintry showers, later turning to sleet with a maximum temperature of 2 °C.

On Wednesday there will be isolated light sleet or snow showers across Lincolnshire, gradually dying away leading to sunnier spells.

The Easter weekend looks ‘cold or very cold’ with a significant wind chill,moderate to severe frosts overnight and isolated light wintry showers.

Drivers are, as ever, advised to take extra care and be aware of the risk of some disruption to travel.
