"Road surface temperatures will be around -5 in the morning and so drivers should take care.
"But we are hoping the worst of the weather will be over by the middle of the week because the temperatures are set to become milder.
"We have been working around the clock for the last 72 hours - to keep primary routes open especially."
Neil Cooper, chairman of the highways, transport and technology scrutiny committee, said: "We need to thank our gritters and other workers for making the roads in Lincolnshire passable for the majority of people."
William Webb, executive member for highways, added: "We can be pro-active with frost. But with snow, we cannot do anything until the snow is there.
"You can be ready to move and that is about it."
