Residents across the county woke up to wintry scenes this morning with towns and villages blanketed by heavy snowfall overnight.

Photographer Ross Jones had the great idea of getting his drone out to capture the stunning scenes of a snowy Shrewsbury.

Dozens of schools have either been closed all day or sent pupils home early. Meanwhile, roads have been much more treacherous than normal, but one thing that cannot be denied, is that the snow does indeed look pretty.

Whilst the snowy conditions cause severe inconvenience to public transport, schools and workplaces, there are incredible picturesque moments all over the region.

The Met Office forecasts that snow in Shrewsbury and southern areas of the county will turn to rain during the early afternoon. A mix of snow and rain is forecast to fall this evening up until around midnight in Shrewsbury and 9pm further south, with temperatures hovering around 1C (34F).

Meanwhile, here are some more great photos taken from around the Shropshire area today.
