More snow is set to sweep into Huddersfield in early March.

Examiner weatherman Paul Stevens is warning of quite heavy falls on high ground later in the week with sleet or snow hitting most areas and we could see as much as 20cm on the hills.

He warned: “From Wednesday onwards, colder air sweeps in so some significant snow in persistent and heavy showers, especially on the hills but not exclusively.

“Monday will start cold and frosty with some hazy sunshine but cloud will thicken with rain arriving through the afternoon becoming heavy through the evening and strong south west winds.

“Tuesday will start off wet and windy with local gales but the rain should move away through the morning with some afternoon brightness. Very mild at about 11°C, but it will be turning colder by later evening with heavy and wintry showers developing through the night with some accumulating snow above 300m.

“Wednesday will be much colder with morning gales and frequent wintry showers of sleet, snow and hail.

“Thursday will be a quieter day with some sunshine as a ridge pushes across UK but another low pressure will push towards the UK by the end of the day.

“This is where it gets interesting as polar air starts to undercut the system the rain may well start to turn to snow overnight Thursday. This continues into Friday and Saturday with bands of sleet and snow circulating around the low more especially on hills. The output is suggesting 15-20cm of snow above 300m.”
