Huddersfield had its coldest night of the winter.

But the signs are that we will be getting milder weather between now and the weekend.

An Arctic blast sent temperatures down as low as minus 3.3 ° C on Monday night in parts of the town.

But there were no problems for drivers.

Kirklees Council had gritted all roads in advance of the cold snap and weatherman Paul Stevens said the Arctic air was dry which meant little white frost affecting car windscreens.

The wintry conditions including the snow, could reach the Pennines by tomorrow and Wednesday but Mr Stevens said there was the chance most areas would escape.

“We have this battle between warm and cold fronts and it could mean up to a foot of snow in some areas, but the margins are such that we may escape altogether.

“Friday will see milder air coming in from the Atlantic for the weekend but then we get back to the topsy-turvey weather, with mild days and cold days.

“I don’t think winter is finished with us just yet”.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service warned of ice on roads and pavements and urged people to take care.

Council crews are to patrol roads from 4.30pm today ready to grit if the weather turns to sleet or snow.
