Temperatures have dropped in Manchester over recent days
Manchester City have confirmed that Monday's Premier League game against Everton at 2000 GMT will go ahead despite the current bad weather.
A win for City would result in them being top of the table at Christmas for the first time since 1929.
Temperatures dropped to -15C in Manchester on Sunday night, although there has been no fresh snow in the area since Saturday.
City have been working hard at clearing ice and slush from the stadium area.
Only two Premier League games survived the weekend programme with snow causing the postponement of seven games, including the high-profile meeting of Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
While most of the pitches were playable, it was the effects of the snow and ice on the surrounding areas that forced games to be called off on health and safety grounds.
Meanwhile, Everton manager David Moyes believes City still have much to do to prove themselves as true title challengers.
"Money isn't always the answer but if you are going to win things you have to spend money," he said.
"If you want a quick return to overtake the Manchester Uniteds and Chelseas of this world, you are going to have to spend good money to get there.
"But even that isn't guaranteed. It takes time to get it all to happen. I don't think you can do it that quickly but I think Manchester City are getting themselves in a position at the right end of the table for what they are spending."
