A fresh blast of bad weather is predicted throughout parts of Lincolnshire this week, bringing with it another wave of traffic cautions.

A spokesman for the forecast team at the Met Office said that the weather in Lincolnshire over the next few days was predicted to be severely cold, with temperatures close to freezing.

"It's going to stay cold and windy, with rain, sleet and snow appearing from the north," he said.

"It's hard to say whether or not the expected rain will turn into snow, but no severe weather warnings have been issued, so in many places, the rain will probably stay as rain.

"Further east and higher up, there's more of a chance of snow developing.

"Following this initial front of rain and sleet, Lincolnshire is to be hit by a week or two of severely cold weather, with night frosts and temperatures around freezing during the day.

"The rain and sleet should continue overnight into Wednesday morning. Visibility will be moderate during the rain, and then should level out to be quite good. However, it is expected there will be some fog patches.

"The continuing rain and sleet will be gradually clearing from the north later on Wednesday or earlier Thursday. From then, drier weather is predicted, following through with wintry showers and night frosts."

The Met Office also said that the weather on Friday and over the weekend was expected to be generally cold with overnight frosts across most areas, and occasional wintry showers.
