HEAVY snow that fell across Yorkshire last week has continued to blanket the landscape, leading to some stunning scenes across the Wolds.

Temperatures were well above freezing this week, with a high of 9C expected tomorrow, but forecasters at the Met Office have warned that snow, sleet and ice may make a half-hearted comeback at the weekend.

High winds and gales are also expected, with forecasters warning that the weather is likely to be unsettled until well into March.

The maximum 30-day forecast says: “Temperatures are probably going to be average or below average for the time of year, particularly in the south-east.

“Overnight frosts are still likely almost anywhere, especially during any quieter interludes.

“Showers and longer spells of rain are possible, with an ongoing risk of snow, mainly in the north and east.”

The end of last week saw this winter’s coldest temperatures in the UK so far, with a low of -17.8C in Cheshunt, Buckinghamshire, on Friday night and much road chaos on black ice caused by fresh rain washing grit from exceptionally cold roads, then freezing instantly.
