Weather warnings and future forecasts
Light snow, cloudy skies, plus some mist and fog is forecast for the next few days, according to the Met Office.
West Yorkshire Police have issued safety warnings to drivers to take extra care in the snow. They have suggested anyone travelling in the snow should set off early, expect delays and not to take any risks.
Car owners should ensure their lights are working and that salt and snow is cleared away from lights.
Windows should be cleared of snow as it is illegal to drive with obscured vision and snow from the top of the car should also be wiped off so it doesn’t fall on to windscreens.
Motorists should keep fuel topped up and carry a mobile phone.
