FORECASTERS are predicting a break in the winter weather which has brought problems to Huddersfield.
No snow is forecast for this region tonight and although there will be frost, temperatures will be on the increase.
Snow is predicted in Scotland, but showers over most of England are expected to be mainly rain and sleet.
And milder weather is forecast for the weekend.
Yesterday morning, drivers faced few problems getting about, thanks to a successful Kirklees Council gritting operation on major routes. But yesterday afternoon, a sudden snowfall made conditions treacherous.
Roads were quickly covered in snow and ice and Kirklees Council gritters, which were busy salting side roads, had to be shifted back to major routes. By teatime most were passable.
But at Little Lepton, off Wakefield Road, residents reported that side streets had not been gritted.
Resident Walter Hill said: "Gritters were out in Lepton yesterday morning but didn't reach us, then they left. "It's lethal down here. This is used as a rat run by a lot of cars."
Terry Walker, of Kirklees highways department, said: "We had snow forecast for 4pm, but it came at 2pm, so I had to pull gritters off side routes to counteract the snow on primary routes. It may be that they were due to work in Little Lepton but were pulled back."
Bus passengers also faced problems. First Huddersfield operations director Keith Robutt said disruption was mainly caused by built-up traffic.
