We're in for a quiet week weatherwise in Huddersfield.
The weekend snow brought some pretty scenes but the snow disappeared almost as quickly as it came in many areas, and there is little chance of any more during the next few days.
Youngsters enjoyed fun in the snow but Kirklees Council had done a full grit and most roads were open with no major problems.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens is expecting the temperatures to rise as we go through the week, after they reached a low of minus 4°C at the weekend.
But he said it was a “stalemate” at the moment with high pressure sitting out to the east and Atlantic fronts to the west, with neither dominating.
Mr Stevens said: “It did get pretty cold over the weekend, with temperatures well below freezing in low-lying areas, but it has already started to warm up and that’s the picture for the week.
“Sunday night it was at freezing, rather than the minus 4° we saw at the weekend, and during the next few days it will get milder.
“We got a few centimetres of snow at the weekend in most areas but for now we may see the odd sleet or snow shower but nothing to trouble us.
“It’s chilly now but as we head through the week and towards next weekend, we’ll see temperatures rise, the winds pick up and some more rain come in.
“It means it should be a lot milder by the end of the week”.
Kirklees Council gritting crews covered all the roads on their priority routes over the weekend and also had crews out working in both Huddersfield and Dewsbury town centres, spreading grit on pavements ready for the shops and businesses opening today.
