Snow starts to fall in Winterton, Scunthorpe and Barton
Snow has started to fall in Scunthorpe and reports say it has also been falling in Barton-Upon-Humber and Winterton today (Wednesday, December 5).
It started snowing in Scunthorpe around 4.30pm and tweets from North Lincolnshire residents say it started snowing in Barton and Winterton at around 4pm.
North Lincolnshire Council gritters have been out in force today, making sure the roads and streets are safe.
Rob Beales, Head of Better Routes at North Lincolnshire Council, said: "We are expecting some colder weather between now and the weekend. "Our winter service team has been on standby since the start of November and will be on standby until the last week of March.""Using information about the weather and road conditions from a number of sources (including the MeteoGroup, road sensors and visual inspections of road conditions), our highway's engineers will decide whether to take action and salt. "We are urging drivers to take extra care in bad weather – just because a road has been salted doesn't mean it won't be slippery, especially where the recent rain has caused water to run off from nearby land onto the highway."
Father's Day will soon be upon us, so Don't Forget....
