Snow has fallen across parts of Cornwall today, giving a festive feel exactly two weeks before Christmas Eve.

Mullion, St Keverne and other parts of the Lizard Peninsula all saw a covering, as well as areas that traditionally see a flurry or two when the temperatures drop, such as the high ground of Bodmin Moor.

The Met Office had issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice, which covered today and continues until midday tomorrow (Sunday).

And it seems with good reason, as a number of places were covered in a thin layer of snow or sleet.

They included Mullion, where postman Steven Legge was doing his deliveries. The snow gave extra authenticity to his elf costume, as he continues the tradition of fancy dress during December, along with colleague Simon Banner.

Poldhu Beach also turned white, with the café warning of particularly slippery conditions and urging customers to take care.

While many people enjoyed seeing the ground turn white outside their homes, for others it was less fun.

There were a number of crashes on the roads, including near Predannack on the way to Mullion, where a car overturned.

A similar situation was reported in Newquay earlier, while Station Road in Perranwell Station was declared “impassable” this afternoon by traffic monitoring system INRIX, due to ice. The road is now said to have returned to normal.

However, drivers across Cornwall have been warned to take care on roads now that darkness has fallen – particularly those not on Cornwall Council’s gritting routes.

With rain and hail falling in other parts of Cornwall that didn’t see snow, the surface of the roads could become particularly treacherous as any moisture freezes.

Temperatures are due to drop below freezing in many parts of the Duchy tonight.

One of the coldest places will be the Bodmin area, where temperatures are due to fall to -2C by 9pm tonight, although it will feel more like -4C.

And it's only going to get colder after the weather warning has ended. The temperature is forecast to drop to -3C by 6am Monday, which will feel like -7C, in some parts such as Bodmin Moor.
