BRACE yourself for an Arctic blast!
Weathermen warned today that many parts of Britain, including West Yorkshire, could see a return to winter this weekend.
Northerly winds were expected to send temperatures plunging in Scotland later today.
And the Arctic winds are likely to spread south to England tomorrow, bringing wintry showers to northern and easterly areas.
With the winds switching to easterly, snow could hit eastern Scotland and eastern England by Monday.
"We can certainly expect a colder spell over the next few days following what has been a fairly mild winter up to now," said a PA WeatherCentre spokesman.
Huddersfield meteorologist Paul Stevens also warned of severe weather.
He said: "At this time of the year it will mean bitterly cold conditions developing with the potential for considerable snowfall for Huddersfield from Monday onwards.
" This set-up, once established, is usually difficult to move, so the cold weather will be around for several days.
"These conditions have not happened for 15 years since February 1991. This could be the first significant snowfall some children have seen!
"If it does not happen this time I will hang up my forecasting hat and leave it to global warming!"
