With snow falling across Calderdale this morning and icy temperatures freezing the ground over the last few days

Calderdale Council announced that the following schools are completely closed:

Colden J & I School - Closed due to adverse conditions on the access roads meaning insufficient staff can make it to school.

Some Calderdale schools have confirmed that they are definitely open. Castle Hill Primary School in Todmorden has told pupils to wrap up warm and stay on the cleared paths. Copley Primary School has also confirmed it is open.

North Halifax Grammar School has also confirmed it is open.

In a tweet the school said: "NHGS open today. Local weather conditions may well vary with snow, ice and fog making journeys tricky. Please travel with care if it is safe to do so. Please notify us of any weather related absence in the normal manner."

Today (Friday) in Calderdale the weather will be cloudy at first, with the odd snow shower here and there. Through the day, some brighter interludes may develop, but there will be the risk of further snow showers.

Tonight there will be further risk of snow showers, though such showers will become increasingly confined to the east as the night progresses.

It will be partly cloudy and often dry on Saturday with only the odd wintry shower across eastern districts, mainly early in the morning.

Sunday will start out fine and dry with some clear skies, but a weak front will move in during the afternoon, bringing some patchy light rain, occasionally sleet.
