THE Beast from the East dumped a load of snow on the Herald’s patch overnight and throughout Friday, causing widespread disruption.
School have closed, events cancelled, public services disrupted, and main and rural roads across the area have been severely affected.
Heavy flurries are forecast to continue throughout the evening and into the early hours, and a yellow weather warning will remain in place until at least 11am on Saturday.
The Met Office said temperatures are then set for a sharp rise, hitting seven degrees on Monday morning, which will trigger a big thaw.
Several events have been cancelled as a result of the adverse weather. More HERE.
The Herald’s photographer Mark Williamson has been out and about, see his pictures below.
Family owned since it was first published in 1860, has been the respected voice of the local community for over 150 years.
