And Hull City's FA Youth Cup fifth round tie with Leicester, at North Ferriby, has been postponed because of snow on the pitch.
Met Office forecasters said the heavy snow showers affecting rush hour traffic across Hull and East Yorkshire would clear as the evening went on and turn increasingly to rain tonight.
A "yellow" warning of severe weather has been issued.
A Met Office spokesman said: "Accumulations of 2 to 4 cm of snow could occur temporarily at lower elevations, with around 10 cm above 200 metres, where drifting is possible in the strong winds.
"Snow will turn to rain from the west during the afternoon and evening, although there will be a short phase of rain falling onto sub-zero surfaces, mainly affecting routes above 200 metres, and leading to an enhanced risk of ice."
Temperatures will hover around 0C, but it will feel as cold as -7C.
East Riding Council said it would salt its main road network.
Hull City Council said its gritters had been out earlier and would return to the roads from 6pm.
Meanwhile, the Environment Agency has issued a flood alert for Bridlington's south pier.
The alert covers the high tide between 5pm and 8.30pm this evening.
