More heavy rain is on the way to Huddersfield.
And there is also a chance some it may turn to sleet and snow on the hills around the town.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has warned that heavy rain into Thursday could well be followed by more downpours at the weekend, with the chance of flooding problems in areas already saturated by the December deluge.
He said: “The weather will return to a westerly over the next few days with some heavy rain moving in from the west through Wednesday night and into Thursday followed by further bands of heavy rain and showers through to the weekend.
“With some colder air arriving from the west after Thursday some of the showers may well turn wintry on hills at times.
“As we move into next week winds will turn more north or even north east and colder conditions will develop for a few days. Night frosts and showers will readily turn to snow to quite low levels.
“With a westerly trying to return later next week, although I suspect it will fail, it could well lead to our first substantial winter northern but exclusive snow event.”
He said the effects of El Nino indicated that the second half of the winter would be substantially different from the first half with much colder conditions.
El Nino is a naturally occurring weather episode which happens every two to seven years. It usually peaks late in the calendar year, although the effects can persist well into the following spring and last up to 12 months.
Mr Stevens said: “Wednesday will start off rather cloudy with some fog on the hills and drizzle. This should clear through the day off the hills with some brightness through the afternoon as winds become more south west and temperatures around 7°C.
“Thursday will start wet after heavy overnight rain slowly clears away through the morning with brighter colder weather from the west with some afternoon sunshine. Windy in the morning becoming less windy in the afternoon.
“Friday will bring further heavy rain clearing away later to sunshine and showers by the afternoon and some of the showers could turn wintry on hills, with temperatures only about 4°C.
“Saturday and Sunday brings another frontal system in from the west, with rain becoming heavy and persistent. Some local flooding is possible over the weekend with 30-40mm, or more than an inch of rain. This will need careful monitoring following heavy rain on previous days.”
