The forecaster says heavy snow will hit the city from 6am on Monday morning and continue through 7am until about 8am.

The two hours of heavy snow could cause chaos on the roads, with ice already possible after a freezing Sunday night.

The Met Office says there is a 95% chance of heavy snow on Monday morning.

Heavy snow is forecast for Leeds from Monday morning

But the good news is that the snow is set to give way to drizzle and rain later in the day - so we're unlikely to be set for a full snow day unless the forecast becomes even colder in the next 24 hours.

Snow will give way to sleet at about 8am, before several hours of heavy rain sets in.

This is the full hour by hour forecast:

6am Heavy snow

7am Heavy snow

8am Sleet

9am Heavy rain

10am Heavy rain

11am Drizzle

12 noon Cloudy

1pm Breaks of sunshine

2pm Sunshine and cloud

3pm Sunshine and cloud

4pm Cloudy until evening

"Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer

"Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer

"Some interruption to power supplies and other services likely."
