Compared to what’s been happening elsewhere in Britain – and the world – it was hardly snowmageddon.

But York has had its first snowfall of 2019.

Less than an inch of the white stuff was able to make the city look pretty without too much disruption early on.


Buses are, for the most part, operating normally. Police have issued warnings to drivers to take care:

York gritters were back out this morning to clear remaining snow off main roads.

The forecast is for a cold day, with a top temperature of 2C, and possibly some more wintry showers.
