WEATHER experts are warning South Yorkshire residents to brace themselves for yet another cold snap - including some snow this weekend.

After a week of gloomy grey skies and thick fog, temperatures were expected to plummet to overnight lows of well below freezing.

And forecasters predict that will lead to some snow today and into Monday.

Laura Caldwell, a forecaster at Meteogroup, said: “The temperatures this weekend will definitely be a few degrees colder than the average for this time of year.”

Sleet and snow showers arrived in South Yorkshire yesterday evening.

Overnight, those showers were due to move south, with a dry and bright start to Sunday - before the arrival of more snow showers from the North Sea as the day goes on.

Monday should then be a largely dry and bright day, but with temperatures during the day dropping to just above freezing.

“The snow should not be anything too substantial,” said Laura.

“But it is going to be cold, because the wind is blowing right in from the continent.” She added the fog had been caused by cold air and low winds, which had not helped it to clear.”
