Milder weather by the weekend
9:23am Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
MILDER, rainy weather should reach North Yorkshire by the weekend – but it could be preceded by further snow on Friday night, say weathermen.
The North York Moors experienced further snowfalls yesterday, and the A169 Whitby to Pickering road remained shut as the snow drifted in the wind.
Forecasters said there was the possibility of more snow tonight, and further frosty nights before warmer air from the Atlantic pushed in by the weekend.
Several schools remained closed in North Yorkshire yesterday because of the snow, including Fylingdales Primary, Goathland Primary School and Weaverthrope Primary, but East Yorkshire schools which were shut on Monday reopened yesterday.
