Hull City Council's gritters have been out since 6.30pm.
East Riding Council said it was prepared for up to four inches of snow over the weekend and had fitted ploughs to its gritters.
Nigel Leighton, director of environment and neighbourhood services, said he was expecting significant accumulations of snow, particularly in the Wolds.
He said: "With snow forecast and continued sub-zero temperatures, the council's focus will be on keeping the main highway network open to motorists, businesses and the travelling public."
Motorists were advised to drive with "extreme caution" on untreated minor roads.
On the railways, Northern Rail - the main local provider - said it was running a "good service" and expected trains to be running as normal on Saturday.
East Coast Trains and First Hull Trains lifted ticket restrictions to help passengers travelling between Hull and London.
Passengers were urged to check the National Rail website before travelling.
