Huddersfield’s Premier League relegation with defeat at West Ham on Sunday was only the start of a cold and wet spell in the East Midlands.

The local area suffered its second cold snap in a week as the temperature dipped below freezing in some parts of the city.

Two weeks ago, when Tottenham went top of the Premier League with a draw at Huddersfield, homes and businesses were inundated by 4ft (1.2m) of floodwater.

Many roads leading to the town centre were closed and traffic caused severe disruption.

Worcester has already been downgraded to a ‘severe flood risk’, and after another gloomy weekend of weather, the latest forecast suggests a second.

It starts early on Monday morning, with forecasts of a minimum temperature of -3C, which is expected to plummet to -5C in places.

By Tuesday, another 0.1C rise is forecast. The Met Office is also expecting to get alerts in place on Wednesday, with the temperature expected to reach 2C.

Meteorologist Mark Wilson said: “With it having dropped below freezing overnight, we’re looking at further snow flurries as far south as the Midlands over the next day or so.”

A Met Office spokesperson added: “If there is a break in the weather, it will be partly cloudy with some rain and showers.

“For most of us, it’s going to be quite a wet week, and above average temperatures.”
