The forecaster says that rain and snow or sleet will fall on January 18 in Leeds, with maximum and minimum temperatures between 4 and minus 1 degrees C.

Then more snow will fall on January 23, 24 and the weekend of January 26 and 27, followed by a final day of snow on Monday, January 28, the forecaster has claimed.

But the Met Office forecast is somewhat different.

The Met Office is predicting a straightforward week. This Thursday won't see snow, just cloudy skies and a max temperature of 3 degrees C, the Met Office says.

In 2018, the Beast from the East blanketed Leeds in a heavy coating of snow in winter.
The forecast according to the Met Office:

This Evening and Tonight:

Chilly at first, however thickening cloud should mean temperatures rise a little, with low cloud helping limit frost. Mainly dry, although the odd spot of drizzle is possible over the hills where it will turn quite foggy in places. Minimum temperature 1 °C.


Breezy but less cold than on Monday. Generally cloudy, but with some brighter spells further east. A little patchy light rain or drizzle is possible, mainly on hills. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Windy with rain to start Wednesday. Becoming brighter, blustery but much colder overnight, with some sleet and snow showers developing and continuing into Thursday. Probably fine but frosty on Friday.
