ON AIR NOW:

Will there be snow in Grimsby and Scunthorpe areas today?

A band of snow is sweeping across the North and Midlands today, but is it likely to make it to Scunthorpe, or even as far east as Grimsby?

Snow started falling in parts of South and West Yorkshire, where an amber weather warning has been issued, this morning. Nottinghamshire has also seen snowfall.

However, the weather warnings end to the west of the River Trent and lower-lying areas could well see rain instead of snow. So will schoolchildren across northern Lincolnshire be left disappointed? Here is the summary for today (Thursday).

According to the Met Office regional forecast, outbreaks of rain and snow will move north to all areas by late morning. Snow is likely over “modest” high ground, heavy at times, but a mix of rain and snow is more likely at lower levels, increasingly turning to rain later. It will be cold with winds picking up and maximum temperatures of 4C.

In Scunthorpe, which is closer to the warning area, any snow is likely to fall during the afternoon. At present, some wintry showers are being predicted between 2pm-4pm. However, any snow is unlikely to last very long, with heavy rain forecast throughout the rest of Thursday and into Friday.

Grimsby, meanwhile, is likely to be battered by heavy rain throughout Thursday and well into Friday morning. Drier conditions could return by mid-morning, with occasional sunny spells, but the risk of showers, some heavy, will remain into the evening.

It will be cold, with highs of 3C today, feeling more like -3, though it will be milder on Friday, with highs of 10C. Wind speeds will strengthen throughout today, with gusts of 40mph by the evening, before dying down on Friday morning.
