Families enjoying the Christmas holidays were out sledging, building snowmen and enjoying the winter wonderland.

The Met Office forecast includes the potential for more snow or rain this evening and tonight, clearing by Saturday morning where it will be followed with sunny spells and the odd shower.

The outlook for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day is for the weather to remain less cold than of late, and changeable with spells of rain or showers interspersed with drier, brighter intervals. Windy at times with a risk of gales.
