The Met Office have issued a Yellow warning for both snow and ice until 12pm on Friday afternoon.
After a mild start to the year, it appears it’s all change this week as a short burst of cooler temperatures has descended upon us.
Don’t worry, we’re not about to start going all clickbait on you like the others do – it won’t be like living under an igloo – but it is set to turn quite ‘wintry’ in some parts.
Forecast for Huddersfield:
The latest forecasts show that the rain showers tonight will progressively turn to snow in some parts of our area. Some of these wintry showers will be heavy in places and are likely to last throughout the night with overnight temperatures dipping to around 1C.
As we head into tomorrow morning (Fri 7th), the snow showers will continue, again heavy in places, meaning that the morning drive to work could be significantly impacted. (Get your alarms set earlier!). The showers should continue into tomorrow afternoon, before easing off and we might even see some sunshine to round off the day tomorrow! Top temperatures of around 3C so wrap up warm!
On the back of this forecast, the Met Office have issued Yellow Weather Warnings for both snow and ice across Huddersfield. Ice and frequent snow showers may lead to travel disruption across Thursday evening and Friday morning.
In a tweet, Kirklees Council have reassured residents that they are monitoring the situation and will be performing a full grit across the network at 7PM tonight and 5AM tomorrow.
As we head into the weekend, it’s all change again with milder conditions taking over from Saturday. We might even reach the dizzy heights of 12C on Monday.
