SNOW is set to return to the hills around Huddersfield over the weekend.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens has warned that as much as 10cm could fall on Saturday, although the worst of it will be on the tops of the moors.
Sleet will hit lower-lying areas including the town centre.
Heavy rain is also set to be a problem.
Mr Stevens, of Salendine Nook, said the heavy rain would sweep in on Saturday and could last into Sunday and as temperatures drop that could well mean it turns to sleet and snow.

He said: “Don’t be surprised if some parts of hilly Huddersfield see snow and even in town, a cold evening will bring sleet.
“Saturday will start off dry but cloud will thicken to bring rain before lunchtime and that will become heavy and persistent.
“On the hills above 1,200 feet we could see up to 5cm of snow, or two inches. Above 1,500 feet there could be as much as 10cm and we will see sleet in the town centre during the evening”.
Temperatures over the weekend will struggle to get above 6 or 7°C but it will feel much colder in a strong wind.
And to add to the gloomy news, more heavy rain is likely next week.
