According to the Met Office, snow may come back to Leeds as soon as Friday this week, with an 11% snow risk also predicted by Net Weather.

The risk of hill snow continues well into December along with some scattered showers and periods of strong winds moving in from the west and northwest.

Although the Met Office has not predicted any larger bouts of snow than what was seen this weekend, temperatures are expected to drop further throughout next month.
