However, heavy rain is forecast for the city and county from mid-morning tomorrow (Friday).
John Skidmore, head of streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "We have been alerted by the Met Office of heavy rain which will arrive on the east coast at 7am and move across the entire region which could lead to potential flooding issues.
"We have suspended all grounds, highway and street sweeping operations tomorrow so we have staff available should we need to activate any emergency plans.
"We will have staff at locations across the East Riding letting us know how heavy the rainfall is and if there are any areas of localised flooding so we can deploy services where we need them quickly.
"The rain is predicted to arrive on the east coast at 7am and move out of the area early afternoon.
"Driving conditions in tomorrow morning’s rush hour could be potentially hazardous due to surface water. I would urge drivers to allow extra time for their journey and drive accordingly."
