Forecasters say Arctic winds, hail and snow are set to sweep across Yorkshire this week. 

Yellow weather warnings

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice on Tuesday, along with a yellow weather warning for wind on Wednesday night and into Thursday.

Expect strong winds, snow and hail over the next three days

Today, it will remain windy and cold with occasional, heavy showers.

However, we should expect icy patches to develop in places over the next few days due to the drop in temperatures. 

It's expected to be extremely icy with some snow from the early hours of Tuesday morning until Wednesday. 

It's then set to be windy with wintry showers on Wednesday.

There's a risk of severe gales and heavy rain on Wednesday night too, but this will start to calm on Thursday, with winds easing by Friday. 

The Met Office has warned of possible travel delays and "a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected".

 

Met Office forecaster Matt Box said: "A cold front will come down on Monday and it will herald the arrival of polar maritime air mass across the UK and, that being a cold air mass, temperatures are going to feel a lot colder.

"It's also going to be accompanied by some cold winds as well, gale-force winds at time across the south, mainly coastal sites and exposed hills.

"There are going to be some blustery snow showers moving in from the west and bringing snow across Scotland at first."

Temperatures are not expected to leave single figures until the cold snap clears towards the end of the week.

This weather warning only means one thing...

The gritters are out in force!
