SNOW affected much of the region on Wednesday morning, with schools closing and roads barely passable.
The A75 between Glenluce and Newton Stewart saw several drivers take a spin, with a similar picture on the Euro route around Gatehouse.
The A755 between Kirkcudbright and Gatehouse was treacherous as heavy snow continued to fall throughout the morning.
Newton Stewart suffered a heavy dose which quickly turned to sleet, causing slushy roads and a few wet feet on pavements.
Kirkcowan Primary School was closed due to a heating failure and many homes in Newton Stewart suffered a loss of power, though some of these are thought to have been due to a tree coming down the day before.
The forecast was for a warmer but wet few days ahead.
