Snow falling in Newton Stewart

The sudden arrival of snow caught Newton Stewart by surprise this morning.

Large flakes of the white stuff started falling, and lying, just before mid-day to bring the first touch of the white stuff to the town this winter.

Snow showers are expected to continue throughout the day and the Met Office warned that ice is expected to form overnight leading to difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.
