SNOW began falling in Bradford this morning and the wintery weather was much more widespread than you might think.

The weather has taken a cold turn this week and snow showers of various degrees were spotted in Queensbury, Riddlesden, Rooley Lane and Saltaire initially.

The Telegraph & Argus's readers have since sent in photos of the situation in their neighbourhoods.

Those living in the higher reaches of the city and surrounding areas have experienced the heaviest of showers, with snow settling on the ground in the likes of Queensbury - or as Rachel Ward dubbed it, "Narnia" - Denholme and Thornton.

There was another movie scene at Ogden Water Country Park, showcased in photos from T&A Camera Club member SunriseSunsets Yorkshire.

Sheilanne Mclean took a picture of the snow covering in the BD6 area.

She said: "It's coming down fast."

Meanwhile, the snow looked fairly thick in the Bingley area, as shown by a photo taken by Samantha Pickles.

A dog enjoyed the fun of the snow in Oakenshaw, while Richard Eastwood got covered after this morning's flurry.

There were lighter dustings in places such as near Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI), or on Rooley Lane.

Other areas that have experienced snowfall today include: Clayton, Wyke, Baildon, Fairweather Green, Allerton, Idle, BD2, BD4 and BD15.

It was forecasted late last week by the Met Office that the city would experience some light snow this week as the district braced itself for its first cold snap of the year. 

Temperatures were set to plummet, with highs of just 3C expected for Monday and Tuesday.

The forecast predicted snow tomorrow in Bradford but it seems the wintery weather has come a day early.

The picture has changed in the last hour though, with the sunnier conditions taking hold.
