TEMPERATURES across Huddersfield plummeted to their lowest level for 10 years last night.
Salendine Nook weatherman Paul Stevens said temperatures fell to a numbing minus 8.1deg C overnight – making it the fifth night in a row when temperatures plunged below minus 4deg.
Across West Yorkshire, Bingley was the coldest place with temperatures falling to minus 9.4deg.
Emley logged a temperature of minus 7.5deg.
But it’s all change today – with a forecast for cloud and rain likely to bring milder tempera-tures of about 5deg. Next week, temperatures are expected to climb as high as 12 deg.
Mr Stevens said: “It shows the two contrasting faces of spring.
“Last week, we had temperatures of 13 deg and this week we have had the coldest temperatures for 10 years. Yesterday, we had a good centimetre of ‘rime’ in Bradley and even snow flurries as well.”
Mr Stevens said drier air meant there was less frost overnight, but added: “We will be picking up more cloud today and there may be a little rain. By the time we get to the weekend, temperatures will be climbing again.”
