More snow could be on the way to North East Lincolnshire on Friday
IT'S not over yet.
The Met Office has warned that the Yorkshire and Humber region could potentially see up to 10cm of snow on high ground and "blizzard conditions" tomorrow.
The bulletin was released late yesterday, along with a yellow warning – meaning "be aware" – for most of the UK, although it also said "there is a good deal of uncertainty about the intensity of snow".
It also warned the public to be aware of "significant disruptions to travel" – which is exactly what those travelling in the area have experienced since the first lashing of snow on Monday.

Yesterday afternoon, Humberside Police warned drivers of poor visibility on the A180 with freezing fog and temperatures dropping as low as -5°C, making driving difficult.
In the Lincolnshire area, a Ford Ranger pick-up skidded off the road and into a ditch at 12.20pm, although the driver was uninjured.
Stagecoach routes were subject to severe delays and the 9 and 9a services did not serve Bradley Road, Waltham, throughout the day, due to a breakdown at the turning of Barnoldby Road just before 9am.
A replacement bus service also ran between Barton-upon-Humber and Cleethorpes after National Rail revealed a train at broken down at Barrow Haven – increasing the journey time between the two stops by half an hour.
However, amongst the chaos, there was some heartwarming stories of people braving the cold to help others.
Firefighters came to the aid of a dog-walker whose beloved pet had got stuck in the icy waters of a pond in a field near Morrisons, Laceby.
Humberside Fire and Rescue were called at 10.52am, arrived at 11.03am and rescued the dog within ten minutes.
Stagecoach bus drivers also showed they were made of strong stuff, after a double-decker skidded on a mini- roundabout.
Another driver from a passing bus stopped to block one side of the road and the colleagues got out to direct traffic around the roundabout the opposite way to minimise disruption to other motorists.
Gritting crews were also out in force, as were refuse and recycling crews, collecting waste from as many houses as possible.
