The North East of England was taken a little by surprise on Friday morning, the 8th January 2021.
An area of rain had approached from the North West and turned to snow after midnight. Some places received 8-10 hours of continuous snow.
Depth increased dramatically with altitude. In Durham City we had only 2-3 inches of snow, but in some of the hillier parts of County Durham snow depths of 6-10 inches were common, especially high ground to the south of the region.
Here are some photographs of my own and taken by friends on social media today. Enjoy!
