A snowy start for many in the Dordogne

MANY people in the Dordogne will have woken this morning to a centimetre or two of snow, as winter takes a bite before its time is up.

Here in Loubéjac the snow began falling late evening and by the morning a still, white blanket covered the ground, with few people out and about.

Temperatures are expected to stay around freezing for the rest of today and tomorrow, so the gritters have been out on the main roads (marked yellow on the map) although by the weekend rain is forecast to return.
