Yorkshire is expected to see some snow on high ground throughout this week.

The Met office has issued a Yellow Warning for the whole of the county urging people to beware the frozen conditions and to take extra care driving on untreated roads.

Early morning snow and sleet showers were evident in Leeds and further north on Tuesday, but the skies are expected to clear for the remainder of the day as we enjoy a mainly dry but chilly Shrove Tuesday.

The wintry weather is expected to continue through the whole week with forecasters predicting snow showers on high ground right through until Saturday.
