Cornwall has avoided the worst of the snow.

The Met Office put out a yellow weather warning, covering the whole of the Duchy except the far west and north coast.

But in the end we escaped with just a few flurries in places like Cameflord, St Dennis and St Buryan.

A fleet of gritters has been treating the Duchy's roads as temperatures dropped to minus two in places overnight.

It is set to remain bitterly cold throughout the day, with gale force north easterly winds.

Temperatures will manage to struggle up to two degrees celcius, before plunging back down to minus three on Monday night.

Devon is expected to bear the brunt of the snow, making its way across the channel. Here the yellow weather warning has been upgraded to amber for the south of the county.

A forecaster for the Met Office said: "Colder air continuing to move westwards is already causing a band of rain to turn to snow over the high ground of southwest England. This process will continue into Monday with a risk of more persistent and at times heavy snow for parts of south Devon and particularly into Dartmoor. Combined with gales and sub-zero temperatures, conditions will be atrocious over high ground, with severe drifting of lying snow.

"There remains some uncertainty in the extent and amounts of snowfall, but even so, there is a low likelihood of high impacts for this area of Devon, thus the upgrade to Amber."
