SOME of the luckiest (or unluckiest if you need to get to work) of Somerset residents woke up to a blanket of snow this morning (Thursday, March 28).

Exmoor was most affected, with deep snow covering the Porlock Hill, Simonsbath and Exford areas.

Somerset Council was forced to deploy a snow plough to the area last night, and affected roads were gritted to keep road users safe from the slippery conditions.

A spokesperson for Travel Somerset said: "Our teams were hard at work with the snow plough in action - just goes to show, winter isn't over until it's over."

It's the second snow sighting of 2024 in the county, with the first fall of the year coming earlier this month.

The Met Office forecast snow in areas of the South West at the beginning of March, and then issued a yellow weather warning for snow.

Many areas of the Mendip Hills were affected, as well as parts of North Somerset, and the villages of Holcombe, and Chilcompton.

In fact, for one driver in Chilcompton, the snow proved too much, and resulted in them crashing into and damaging a home on Bakers Lane.

The adverse weather looks set to continue throughout today for many parts of Somerset and Devon, but not in the form of snow - instead, wind.

A yellow warning has been issued by the Met Office due to expected strong winds which could cause 'hazardous conditions' from 7am until 6pm on Thursday, March 28.
