The Pennines along with large swathes of England, Wales and Scotland are on alert for more snow and ice.
A cold front sweeping in from the Atlantic is set to bring more snow as we had on Wednesday in Huddersfield.
The Met Office has issued yellow warnings of snow and ice for Thursday, Friday and Saturday as a band of wet weather moves eastwards followed by freezing temperatures under clearer skies.
And Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has warned of more unsettled weather with snow settling on the hills and moors.
He said Thursday’s bright but cold start will be followed by thickening cloud.
“Thursday evening and night brings low pressure right across Kirklees and Calderdale and with some cold air in place the rain will turn to snow quite readily through the night and more especially later in the night as colder air once again begins to dig in from the north.
“The rain will be heavy at times through the night and turn to snow quickly above 250m and will fall only as snow above 400m. By midnight in response to the heavy rain and cooling temperatures the snow level will fall generally to 200m as temperatures cool to 1-2°c in towns and 0°c on the hills.

“Rain and sleet will fall in those lowerareas below Oakes, Ainley Top, Bradley, Waterloo, lower parts of Meltham, Kirkburton, Kirkheaton, the valleys around Holmfirth and most of HD1 post code.
“Those above 250m such as higher parts of Golcar, Holmfirth, Meltham and Salendine Nook expect 2-5cm of wet snow to settle and above Outlane, Holme, higher Halifax expect as much as 10-15cm. Elsewhere it will be very wet with some local road flooding. It will be cold with a strong SE wind becoming North East by end of night, just strong enough to cause some drifting of lying snow over higher roads.
“Friday sees the sleet and snow gradually become more showery and lighter but turn increasingly wintry again towards afternoon as colder air digs in from the NE with icy roads by evening Friday, especially over the higher routes.
“Saturday and Sunday look set to be bright and cold with sleet, snow and hail showers, with good spells of sunshine in between. Again some of the showers could bring some snow even to the town centre.”
