Snow has fallen in parts of Huddersfield and the Holme Valley and all areas have had heavy rain, with standing water causing problems for motorists.

Further south, there have been warnings of treacherous driving conditions due to snow on the A628 Woodhead Pass in both directions, particularly between Woodhead and Langsett.

He said the heavy rain will slowly clear away east to leave a brighter afternoon but with winds gusting to 40mph, it will feel cold at just 6°C-7°C.

He said: “Tuesday through to Thursday is a mixture of sunshine and heavy showers. With chilly air in place when the showers come along they may well be thundery with hail and some sleet, especially on high ground. It’s unlikely to get above 7°C-9°C (48°F.”
