Huddersfield enjoyed a brief taste of Spring - but it won’t last.

Blue skies and sunshine have sent temperatures up into double figures.

But weatherman Paul Stevens has warned we are in for a repeat of last weekend’s Arctic blast, with sleet and snow hitting many areas and temperatures down as low as 2°C.

He has also confirmed it’s not unusual as snow often falls into May in the north and it has been recorded as late as June 6, back in 1975.

“There have been many years when the May Bank Holiday has seen snow so it is not uncommon.

“We had quite a battering last weekend and it looks the same again for this coming weekend, with the very cold weather likely to linger for a good few days.

“We are getting bitterly cold air coming all the way from the Arctic into Yorkshire and when it meets low pressure, there is sleet and snow, certainly on the high ground but often to lower levels.”

He said the cross-polar flow from the Arctic will mean late April may have a significant cold spell with night frosts and significant snowfall for the hills and at night to lower levels around Kirklees and Calderdale.

“Wednesday will be dry with good spells of warm sunshine but chilly mornings and evenings with some overnight patchy frost. We could see a high of 13°c but equally we could get a low of just 1°c.

“Thursday will be similar but with the sun being more hazy with an easterly breeze by the end of the day and again a possible high of 13°C.

“Friday will bring a chilly NE wind as cooler air begins to spread south east down the North Sea with a few light showers on east facing hills but it is the weekend which brings colder air south with a significant fall in pressure.

“That will introduce much colder air from the NE with some sleet and snow through Sunday and temperatures well below normal.

“This cold weather lasts well into next week with no real sign of prolonged heat yet on way in the next 7 to 10 days.”
