Early on this morning we were treated to a lovely sunrise and clearer skies, but since then it has clouded over, started snowing - and we should have snow for the day.

It's a cold morning too with temperatures down into minus double figures.

Snow isn't expected to be falling into tomorrow though with a good chance of clouds moving on and making way for some clearer conditions. After that, snow expected on Christmas Day.
