Have your say

For most of Yorkshire, the cold winter snap has given way to a slightly warmer outlook.

But that's certainly not the case everywhere - as these photos, taken in Yorkshire today, so amply outline.

Swaledale Mountain Rescue Team took these pictures of the deep snow in the Yorkshire Dales this morning.

The images show a blanket of the white stuff right across the fields.

The forecast for tonight also suggests more snow and sleet will be on the way in Swaledale tonight (Wednesday).

-> Snow, sleet, hail and thunder set to hit parts of Yorkshire as temperatures plummet

What the Met Office says

Showers continuing through the evening, accompanied by a raw easterly wind. These showers will give way to more prolonged spells of rain, sleet and perhaps some hill snow through the night. Cold with a patchy frost in clearer spells. Minimum temperature -1 °C.

Thursday:

Rain and hill snow clearing through the morning leaving a mixture of light showers and sunny spells. Longer periods of sunshine in the afternoon, but still breezy towards the coast. Maximum temperature 10 °C.

-> No route into Yorkshire Dales for the next generation, say farmers

How about further south?

Sleet is also forecast for some other parts of Yorkshire; however Sheffield, Leeds and Hull can expect rain and some cold temperatures more than actual snow.

So don't worry - we won't be seeing scenes like these on the high street just yet!
