Six schools in Brigg and district are closed to pupils and staff today (Wednesday, February 28) following significant snow falling overnight.
"Severe weather" means that that there will be no lessons at the village schools in Scawby and Wrawby - nor at some in the town (see below).
Our thanks go to North Lincolnshire Council, the local education authority, for alerting us to the situation.
Further snow showers are forecast for today and tomorrow, plus clear and sunny intervals.
The temperature will not rise much above 0C which is 32F for those of us of more senior years.
Mind how you go on paths and roads.

NF ADDS: Many Brigg people will remember Cedric from when he lived in Brigg.Further weather updates to follow on Brigg Blog...
