Snow to fall once again in West Yorkshire, Met Office issues warning

Child And Mother Snow

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow in West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire this coming week.

The counties have been issued with a yellow “be aware” warning, which forecasts cold temperatures and snow falling on Wednesday (28 January) lasting through to Thursday.

The snow is expected to fall overnight in particular, with 2-5cm expected at low levels and 10cm expected at high ground above about 150cm.

Strong and gusty winds are also likely to accompany the snow showers and lead to significantly reduced visibility at times.

“Showers will become frequent and heavy”

The Met Office’s chief forecaster said: “An active cold front is expected to push southeast across the UK during Wednesday introducing an increasingly cold and unstable air mass.

“Showers will become frequent and heavy, increasingly falling as snow in the north and west, and driven well inland by strong to gale force northwesterly winds. Accumulating snow is likely, especially overnight.”

The public have been advised to be aware of disruption to travel.
