Rain, rain and more rain is on the menu for Christmas in Huddersfield.
Even though Christmas Eve started off brightly and there was a similar forecast for Christmas Day, heavy rain is the order of the day.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has warned that some areas could be hit by flooding as the ground is already saturated.
Other parts of the country are expected to fare even worse. Flood-hit Cumbria is bracing itself for another six inches of rain over the Christmas period.
December could well be heading for the record books with well over double the amount of rain so far this month.
Mr Stevens, of Salendine Nook , said: “Christmas Eve started off wet and very windy with gusts still around 50mph-60mph.
“The rain, heavy at times in the morning, will move away but squally showers will follow through the afternoon with some sunshine in between.
“The winds will moderate by the evening and it will become colder, with showers turning wintry on the hills. If you want to see some sleet and wet snow, head for the higher ground after midnight into Christmas day and you might just be lucky.
“Temperatures will hover around 8c falling to 4c by evening.

“Christmas Day itself will start off bright and cold but milder air with some heavy rain will move north through the day. This may well get stuck very close to Kirklees and Calderdale and the latest guidance put a 36-hour wet spell across the whole area.
“That could mean up to 30-50mm of rain in most areas and over the hills there could be as much as 60-80mm in places.

“Given the ground into Boxing Day this may cause us some local flooding concerns so this will need monitoring later on Boxing Day. There is still some uncertainty so keep up to date with Met Office Warnings.
“Through Boxing Day this rain with strong winds will move away to the north but further rain may well develop through Sunday.”
