WEATHER experts have warned: "Wrap up well, it's getting colder".
Huddersfield has been told to expect bitter cold air with strong easterly winds later this week with the potential for snow showers.
Salendine Nook meteorologist Paul Stephens said: "It's a repeat of last year. Much colder weather arrived this time last year across Kirklees with quite a few snow showers developing in the strong North East Winds.
"This year looks likely to be a repeat performance.
"After the recent mild weather, a prolonged spell of wintry weather will start early in the week and last well into the week and probably beyond next weekend.
"I'd warn the people of Huddersfield not to put away their winter woollies just yet."
He said some of the weather could be the worst of the winter so far with sub-zero temperatures day and night by Thursday.
There will be some bitter wind chills where temperature and wind combine to make it feel much colder.
Wind chills of minus 8°C look likely. There will also be an increasing risk of snow.
Mr Stephens said: "The detail is unclear at this stage but snow flurries are likely with perhaps a few centimetres on higher ground."
