Winter has arrived in Derbyshire after a blanket of snow dusted its fields, peaks and roads.

These were the scenes in the Castleton area of the Peak District yesterday morning where up to 3cm of snow fell overnight on Sunday.

The chilly conditions failed to deter commuters who were spotted winding up Winnats Pass, though a damaged vehicle had been abandoned at the roadside suggesting some drivers had struggled on the slippery surfaces.

Walkers were also unfazed by the freezing conditions as hikers layered up to scale Mam Tor and enjoy the wintry scenes over Castleton and Hope Valley.

But according to forecasters Sheffield families won’t be out sledging or building snowmen anytime soon.

While temperatures will drop across the city over the coming week and there is a possibility of wintry showers, the chance of significant snowfall is low.

Wind is expected to be the most noticeable factor of the weather and a severe warning of strong gales has been issued by the Met Office.

Gusts of up to 60mph are expected by Friday, which could cause disruption to travel.

Temperatures are predicted to dip below freezing overnight at the weekend.
