A light snowfall has reached parts of Telford this morning after a cold night where temperatures dropped to freezing.

Scenes of snow falling in Dawley were captured on social media by Liam Ball.

Today the forecast shows a largely dry day with sunny spells in the afternoon, though eastern areas may see a few, potentially wintry, showers at times.

There is a risk of icy conditions during the morning and it will feel cold with light winds. The maximum temperature will be 4 °C.

Snow has also reached other parts of the Wrekin and higher points on the Shropshire Hills this morning, after heavier snowfall last week.

There are no flood or snow and ice warnings in the place for the county today but cold temperatures are set to hit overnight, bringing icy conditions in the morning.

It will be mostly dry and cloudy overnight, with occasional clear spells and very cold temperatures. This could see a risk of freezing fog patches and icy roads on Thursday morning. The minimum temperature will reach -5 °C.
