@Bradford_TandA Why does snow in W Yorks cause hysteria, closed schools, canceled buses, car crashes? Scotland get 2 feet and just carry on.— @4EverSteve 14 January 2013
Offenders on Community Payback Orders are on stand-by to clear footpaths and public areas as severe winter weather conditions hit Bradford, say West Yorkshire Probation Service.
As part of their court orders, offenders taking part in the trust’s Community Payback teams will clear snow and ice as the region braces itself for plummeting temperatures and hazardous conditions.
Not looking forward to the journey home! @bradford_TandA http://t.co/SRbouRZH— @GemmaHosker 14 January 2013

For anyone lucky enough to be cosy and warm at home while the snow's falling...
The Highways Agency has issued an ‘amber alert’ advising motorists to take extra care while travelling due to the increased risk of adverse driving conditions.
They are advising commuters to plan their journeys before they set out, checking forecasts and road conditions, and to leave extra time or delay their journeys if the weather becomes severe.

The snow is certainly sticking in BD6, Halifax Road is clear thanks to the gritters.It is snowing heavily at the moment and looks like it is going to stay that way. If it stays this way it could disruption to traffic at the tea-time rush hour. Please drive with care bearing in mind the wintry weather.
Nice time-lapse video of the snow falling at the University of Bradford this morning, posted on YouTube by MattDysonKeo.

The Met Office has upgraded its “cold weather action” warning to level three - one underneath a national emergency - for all of England, warning winter weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.
Andy Page, Met Office chief forecaster, said: “We expect rain, sleet and snow to affect many parts of the UK over the next day or so, with eastern areas of Britain seeing the most snowfall. With some very low temperatures overnight we expect ice to cause some impacts too and people should be aware that there is likely to be some travel disruption.”
Overnight snowfall is causing minor traffic disruption in Bradford today.
Bradford Council said its gritters had been out on primary routes in the city from around 3.30am this morning as rain and sleet turned to snow.
So far, no major incidents have been reported, but visability is reduced on the M62 due to fog.
Passengers at Leeds Bradford Airport are being warned to allow extra time for their journeys and to check the status of their flight with their airline or tour operator before travelling to the airport.
No school closures have been reported in the Bradford area.
