Images from the North East Traffic Cameras network show snow has fallen across the borough, with more predicted by the Met Office during today, Monday, February 8, as a yellow weather warning was extended to run until midnight on Wednesday.

The @NELiveTraffic team shared a host of stills and videos from its cameras via its own social media channels and urged people to driver with caution.

It told followers: “Road Surface temperatures have dropped below -1C across Tyne & Wear.

"Take care due to possible ice on surfaces.

“Please be careful on the roads today & extra vigilant on the untreated areas if your journey is not essential stay indoors & wrap up warm.”

Today’s forecast suggests there will be wintry showers throughout today, leading to snow accumulations to all levels.

It will feel very cold in the strong northeasterly winds and temperatures will struggle to reach above freezing, with the maximum temperature expected to be 1C.
