TEMPERATURES will drop to freezing with cold winter frosts hitting Huddersfield.
Examiner weatherman Paul Stevens last night predicted temperatures would drop to as low as -1°C in high parts of the Pennines.
He said: “We will get a widespread frost – you can already see the temperatures are dropping. This is the first real nip that we’re going to get this autumn.
“People up early in the morning will be reaching for their scrapers to get the frost off their cars.”
But the Salendine Nook man predicted that this weekend would be much milder.
He said: “Instead of air from the Arctic we will have the wind pulling up from the Mediterranean. It will be a pleasant weekend with temperatures at about 13 or 14°C (57°F).
“It will be more like temperatures expected for the end of summer – but nothing like the heatwave we previously had.”
