HEAVY snow hit Huddersfield last night – with more predicted for next week.
Salendine Nook meteorologist Paul Stevens warned yesterday there could be up to 10cm of snow on the ground this morning.
He said: “There will be up to 5cm of snow for areas around Huddersfield over 700ft – that includes Salendine Nook, Oakes, Outlane, Slaithwaite and Marsden. On the A62 and A635 towards Saddleworth there could be 10cm of snow.
“In Huddersfield town centre there will probably be 1cm to 2cm.”
Mr Stevens added that roads would be treacherous today. He said: “There will be slushy difficult driving conditions as the snow gradually melts.”
But Mr Stevens thinks things will improve at the weekend.
He said: “Temp-eratures will be around 5°C or 6°C, which is about average for this time of year. There will be frosts at night with potentially the odd wintry shower.”
However, more snow is set to fall in the middle of next week. “The winter weather isn’t over yet.”
