Preston has awoken to a thin blanket of snow – a rare sight for the city.Advertisement
Known as one of the wettest cities in the UK it’s not often we see temperatures drop low enough for snow.
However, Saturday (9 December) saw a thin dusting overnight and with temperatures barely above freezing a steady snowfall has continued throughout the morning.
There’s an inch or two out there – although it is not impassable and Prestonians have been taking to social media to share their snaps and getting out there to walk the dogs and throw snowballs.

A yellow weather warning remains in place from the Met Office throughout Saturday and Sunday – with areas to the south of Preston upgraded to an amber warning for heavier snowfall.
The snow has been triggered by incoming Storm Caroline which is seeing strong winds lash Northern Scotland.
