It’s SNOWING in Sheffield.
Residents have this morning reporting flakes of the white stuff falling in a number of areas including Lodge Moor and Stannington.
On Twitter, Tony Carroll said: “I don't want to alarm any of you valley dwellers, but it's been snowing on and off up at Lodge Moor for the last hour.”
And the Sheffield Honey Company said: “It’s literally SNOWING here at the farm, can’t remember the last time we had October snow.”
The weather forecast for today was for a cold, windy start.
After that it should be cloudy with some bright spells, but also a few showers, some wintry ones on higher ground.
It should be sunnier this afternoon, however, with highs of up to 7°C.
Last year, the city suffered one of its worst winters ever, with the snow storms dubbed the beast from the east causing chaos on multiple occasions.
