A big gritting operation is planned for Huddersfield with more snow forecast.
Kirklees Council’s gritting teams will be out later today and early tomorrow as the town is expected to see widespread snow over the next 48 hours.
Temperatures have already dipped close to freezing and the forecast is for snow of up to 10cm on the hills and moors, with a covering in much of the town.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for West Yorkshire from later today - Tuesday - ahead of the predicted snow
“We will grit at 6pm today and we will be doing another full grit of the priority routes at 5am tomorrow.
“Please stay safe”.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens said temperatures had risen to only 2.1°C by late morning and were expected to stay low throughout the day.
“There is a snow shower not far away from the Holmfirth area and there will be snow showers across the rest of Huddersfield this afternoon as a trough crosses the area.
“This marks the boundary of even colder air later in the day and the snow showers will become a bit more widespread into the evening and overnight with slight deposits in places and ice on the roads as temperatures fall close to freezing”
