Snow forecast to fall in the Scunthorpe area tomorrow
Snow is set to fall in the Scunthorpe area tomorrow, according to the Met Office.
Latest forecasts predict some snowfall from 3am on Sunday morning.
Snow spells are expected to last through to midday.
Heavier snow is expected to fall on Monday, when it will be very cold with snow showers, icy patches and hard overnight frosts.
Sporadic snowfall is likely on Tuesday, with further snow predicted on Wednesday.
Met Office forecasters based at the Highways Agency's National Traffic Operations Centre say showers of sleet and snow will affect much of north-east England and parts of the East Midlands, Norfolk and southern England, today and on Sunday
The Highways Agency says "significant" snowfall is expected across England on Sunday.
And it is warning drivers to check weather and traffic conditions before setting out on journeys.
Steve Crosthwaite, head of the National Traffic Operations Centre, said:
"We will be monitoring and using salt to treat the network as we do routinely at this time of the year. However, snow showers can be highly localised and hard to predict so drivers have a key role to play in checking weather reports and planning for their journeys before leaving home.
"We are being told to expect more widespread wintry weather on Sunday evening and into Monday morning - so there is a risk that if the weather doesn't turn out to be quite as snowy as people expect over the weekend, they might be lulled into a false sense of security and be less prepared for the morning rush hour."
Travelling motorists are being warned that they should keep up-to-date with weather and travel advice, heed warnings and electronic message signs and drive to conditions - leaving extra time for journeys and extra room for braking and avoiding sudden manoeuvres such as braking or changing lanes suddenly.
Even where roads have been treated, highways bosses say conditions can vary, especially in vulnerable locations such as where there are overhanging trees, hollows and exposed sections of road.
