A COLD snap caused difficult driving conditions across Huddersfield last night.
About a foot of snow built up on the high roads around Holmfirth and in the Holme Valley.
There was also significant snow falls in Outlane, Salendine Nook and Scapegoat Hill.
Lower down in Huddersfield town centre snow fell heavily for about two hours but failed to settle because the ground was wet from earlier rain.
The Arctic conditions were predicted by Huddersfield meteorologist Paul Stevens, of Salendine Nook, earlier this week in the Examiner.
He said: "Last night temperatures dropped to -3.2C in Salendine Nook, but it will have been much colder up on the hills.
"It was the coldest November night in five years and the snowfall, up to 8cm in parts, was the heaviest we have had in November for more than 10 years."
Road traffic police said there had been a lot of minor bumps on the roads but no serious accidents were reported.
Overnight temperatures plummeted further and a freezing day and even colder night was predicted for today.
Met Office spokesman Rick Robins said the snow was caused by cold air pushing down across the country.
"Yesterday there were two bands of air across the country - a cold one and a milder one further south," he said.
"As the colder one moved south it turned rain into snow in some parts. It will remain cold today and tonight but there is a change in store over the weekend.
"The milder air will make a return warming things up again but there could be some more slight flurries of snow as this happens."
