After a mixed night of wintry weather, it looks mostly bright and crisp today.

The occlusion which brought the precipitation is now clearing southwards so for Wednesday morning pretty sunny for most of us. Wintry showers may blow in off the Lincs coast, the further they blow inland the more likely they are to turn wintry.

Tonight, a widespread ground frost is expected with icy stretches, then a cold start likely on Thursday with wintry showers for the Lincs coast. They will die out later however, leaving a dusting of snow in places. Winds will increase. It will be a tricky and nasty day to forecast.
