The news comes just a week after heavy snow fell across Leeds and Halifax.

In Leeds, heavy snow fell for hours as a thick blanketing made conditions very difficult.

This weekend, forecasters say icy conditions will return, with more snow possible and a lot of ice everywhere else.

The forecast for Leeds, Halifax and West Yorkshire:

Today:

After a cold and frosty start many areas will have a dry, sunny but cold day. However, cloudier conditions will persist across the Pennines, with scattered wintry showers here. This evening temperatures will quickly fall. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

Tonight:

Isolated wintry showers may continue across the Pennines, but most places will be dry with clear periods, with possibly some patchy freezing fog forming. A widespread sharp frost will develop. Minimum temperature -6 °C.

Sunday:

After a very frosty start it will remain cold with temperatures hardly climbing above freezing, despite sunny spells and light winds, once any early patchy freezing fog slowly clears. Maximum temperature 3 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Frosty start then cold with sunny spells, and mainly dry, for Monday. Widespread overnight frost. Tuesday mainly dry and bright, then snow overnight. Wednesday any residual snow easing, becoming milder.
