Did you shiver through Huddersfield’s coldest night of the winter?

Temperatures plummeted to as low as minus 4.1°C on Wednesday night.

And Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has warned the cold snap will stick with us, with sleet and snow on the way over the weekend.

It’s likely to mean a covering on the higher hills and moors around Huddersfield but could be followed by more snow next month and into March.

It will, however, also be bright and sunny for much of the weekend.

This morning saw icy roads in many parts after a bitterly cold night.

Mr Stevens said: “We’ve just had the coldest night of the winter so far.

“It was minus 2° C in the hills and even colder, down to minus 4.1° in low-lying areas.

“It meant a few snow flurries on the high ground such as Holme Moss and ice for many of us.

“The cold and sunny weather continues through Friday and into the weekend and we are likely to see a covering of snow in many hilly areas.

“It will be staying bitterly cold and as we start next week, it could get even colder. Those who thought Spring may be on the way should think again.

“Sleet and snow will be features in the Pennines through next week and as we head into March, and by the middle of the month there are signs it could bring us some heavier falls.

“The odds on having snow at Easter are far higher than they are for having snow at Christmas so winter is not finished yet”.

Kirklees Council gritting teams were out in force on Wednesday evening, covering all the main routes around the area.

Acrss the UK, there will be little change in the weather through the weekend with plenty of dry weather expected and a cold north-easterly breeze.

Sunny spells and variable cloud are to be expected but there may also be a few isolated wintry showers, especially in the north-east.
