Gales lashed Huddersfield at speeds of up to 70mph.
And the warning from Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens is: There’s more bad weather on the way.
The strong winds, racing in from the Atlantic, caused some damage including a tree blown down in Roman Close, Mount.
There were also speed reductions introduced on on trans-Pennine stretches of the M62 motorway.
Mr Stevens, of Salendine Nook, said: “It was a windy night on Wednesday, with gusts 70mph and driving rain, and those winds hit again on Thursday.
“Squally showers later turned into wintry ones during the evening.
“It’s also going to remain very cold with a high of just 5°C with further wintry showers and icy patches tonight and over the weekend”.
The Met Office reported winds of 101mph in Great Dunsell, Cumbria - the highest across the UK on Wednesday - while other exposed areas also recorded speeds well in excess of 70mph.
Snow and ice caused trouble on roads and railways, while the high winds have also triggered more disruption, with trees and flooding blocking the tracks.
The Environment Agency issued 149 flood alerts and 32 flood warnings across the whole country.
Darron Burness, from the AA’s severe weather team, said: “The reality is that while you can have your car completely prepared for winter, you can’t control what goes on around you. If there’s an accident ahead or a lorry jack-knifes, you’re probably not going anywhere in a hurry, so you need to be prepared for that.”
Average temperatures are expected to continue falling through the weekend, with a northerly airstream likely to be established by Sunday. Frost and ice are expected to become increasingly widespread through the period, with some severe overnight frosts likely in the north over any snow cover by Monday.”
Because of the warnings Public Health England has issued a Cold Weather Alert, reminding people to look out for others, to keep warm indoors and to take care when walking on icy or wet surfaces when out and about.
Dr Stephen Morton, Director of the Public Health England Centre in Yorkshire, said: “Cold does kill, even in places where the temperatures aren’t at their lowest. Most of our advice on keeping warm in cold weather may seem like common sense, but it’s important that we make the point that people should think about how cold can affect them.
“Our advice is that when indoors, have plenty of warm food and drinks to stay warm and try to maintain indoor temperatures to at least 18C, particularly if you are not mobile, have long term illness or are 65 or over. If you are able to move around, keep active as best you can. If you need to go out wear lots of thin layers and wear shoes with a good, slip-resistant grip to prevent any accidental falls”.
