Bredon Hill just loomed into view from behind murk & cloud. Slightly snow-capped. Nothing here, but probably some on top. #Malvern— @BadgerMash 14 January 2013
Brrr - make sure you keep your stomach muscles pulled in tight if you're walking on ice, this will protect your back if you slip #Malvern— @3CountiesChiro 14 January 2013

Jon Fraser, Worcestershire County Council Highways Customer and Community Manager:
"The weather forecasts anticipated a busy weekend for the gritting crews and it turned out that way. All of the designated routes, which take in around 800 miles worth of road across the county, were covered on Saturday, Sunday and during the early hours of today. It's been one of the busiest weekends of the season so far.
"To date we've used around 2,000 tonnes of the salt we had in stock at the start of winter, which leaves us still with about 11,000 tonnes in the depots.
"It does look like it's going to remain cold for the rest of this week and, as usual, we'll be monitoring things around the clock with gritters on standby to roll out when needed. I expect the teams will be out and about over the next few days.
"As ever, we'd urge motorists to take care as they are out and about on the roads when freezing temperatures bite. The message is still the same but not less important – don't assume it's safe to travel at normal speeds just because you think it's been treated with grit. Always temper driving and respect the conditions."
Grit runs covering all designated primary and secondary routes across Worcestershire were carried out from 6pm on Saturday, 2.30pm on Sunday and 3am today.
Wow where did all that snowfall come from?! Some of us may be grumbling about it, but our animals certainly don't... http://t.co/NHv58AXO— @WestMidSafari 14 January 2013

Busiest weekend of the winter so far for the gritting teams. Rain now falling across W'shire. Please continue to take care. #grittertwitter— @worcscc 14 January 2013
Reports of snow falling across parts of the West Midlands. Motorists be careful, it takes longer for vehicles to slow down on snowy roads.— @OFFICIALWMAS 14 January 2013
Paul Michealwaite of netweather.tv, which is based in Pershore, says Worcestershire has seen the worst of the snow for the time being. Wintry showers will continue today and overnight, with brighter spells from tomorrow and it's going to stay cold.

PEOPLE in Worcestershire have woken up to a blanket of snow this morning.
The Met Office predicted between two and five centimetres (1-2ins) of the white stuff was set to fall across the county overnight.
Worcestershire County Council's fleet of gritters were out treating roads from 2pm yesterday as temperatures plunged to -2.
However, it seems the snow could be short lived with heavy rain due to hit the county from mid-morning.
