A NEW belt of snow is headed for Yorkshire on Sunday, forecasters warned today.

The day will be marked by sleet and snow likely and a marked wind-chill, the Met Office said.

Further sleet or snow showers will fall on Monday and Tuesday, with hill snow from as soon as tomorrow.

Meanwhile, farmers were heralding the start of spring as they readied the first flowering crops of the new year for harvest.

Against a recent backdrop of torrential downpours, snowfall and plunging temperatures, growers say winter’s grip on the British weather is relenting, giving the common daffodil an opportunity to thrive.

Some farmers began their harvests with 2013 barely a week old, though others are now seeing their fields turn a golden yellow.
