Snow is falling in Devon and more is predicted to fall today (Tuesday) and overnight into tomorrow.

Dartmoor has been turned white today while the majority of Devon has remained snow free, instead experiencing: heavy rain, sleet, hail and freezing temperatures.

Much of the county woke up to ice-clad vehicles and tricky driving conditions.

According to the Met Office today ‘the snow will mainly be over the hills, although there may be some in low lying areas’ later this evening.

Tonight there will be more snow on high ground, with a chance of some snow in low lying areas.

Temperatures will drop to -1C tonight, with a widespread frost expected to form.

There will be another frosty and icy start to the day tomorrow. It will be a largely dry day with bright periods.

Wintry showers bringing snow, sleet and rain to coastal areas are ‘possible’.

From Thursday onwards temperatures are expected to rise but overcast rainy conditions should be expected to dominate the weather going into the weekend.
