"We will see a couple of snow flurries, but the worst is probably over.
"As we go into tonight, temperatures will be below freezing, so there will be a risk of ice.
"It will generally be dry on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and there will be a few bright spells here and there.
"Temperatures will remain low on these days and are set to drop to -3C during the nights."
North Lincolnshire Council is well prepared to deal with these low temperatures.
Grit stocks in North Lincolnshire are now above 750 tonnes, to combat adverse weather conditions.
North Lincolnshire Council received a delivery of 250 tonnes on January 15, followed by a delivery of 500 tonnes on Tuesday, January 22.
Nigel Sherwood, North Lincolnshire Council cabinet member for highways and neighbourhoods, said: "I think we are very much ahead of the game.
"We've got the resources, staff and equipment to deal with weather and a large stock of salt on site."
As the weather takes a turn for the worse, the RSPCA has offered advice for animal lovers.
RSPCA wildlife expert Nicola Cunningham said: "Sometimes it is the small things that can make all the difference.
"A little bit of extra food left out for a hungry robin or badger may be the help it needs to last through a spate of frosty weather, and just melting a small hole in your garden pond can make all the difference.
"We can all struggle when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and our wildlife friends are often the most vulnerable to the extremes the elements take.
"They just need a bit of a helping hand sometimes."
