BITTERLY cold winds and more snow is forecast for Huddersfield later today and tonight.
Forecasters said winter was returning with a vengeance after heavy snowfalls affected large parts of the country yesterday.
Scotland and Wales were badly hit over the weekend and overnight.
Snow showers yesterday across Kirklees led to accumulations of around three inches on higher ground.
And although it created a winter wonderland for children, it was miserable for sporting fans with many football and rugby matches called off.
"Winter, it seems, is back with a vengeance," said Matthew Dobson of the PA Weather Centre.
The greatest risk of disruption will be over higher ground where six to eight inches of snow could fall, with blizzard conditions in strong winds.
Mr Dobson said cool air was coming in from Scandinavia and at the same time, warm air was moving in from the west. As it comes up against the cooler air, it is going to turn to snow.
The risk of icy roads remained a hazard although Kirklees Council gritting teams have worked throughout the weekend to keep routes clear across the district.
A spokesman said they were closely monitoring today's situation to ensure roads were ice and snow free.
