Council planning 'for 5cm of snow' in parts of East Yorkshire
The East Riding will be subject to subzero temperatures overnight with 5cm of snow falling on higher ground, according to forecasters.
East Riding Council will be treating the region’s roads tonight (Thursday) and again in the early hours of tomorrow (Friday) morning to ensure main roads are gritted.
With strong winds also expected gritters will be fitted with ploughs to patrol the Wolds and clear roads where necessary.
Salt stocks at the council’s depots remain healthy and salt bins have been restocked. The council will also be depositing and refilling salt piles at strategic locations across the East Riding.

John Skidmore, head of streetscene services at the council, said: “The council is putting plans into place to undertake winter maintenance operations over the next 24 hours and into the weekend.
"While West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire are being forecast to see the worst of the conditions, the council is not being complacent and will have staff and equipment on standby over the weekend to support our residents.
"Forecasts, at present, indicate that this cold snap is likely to last well into early next week."
