This video captures what is believed to be the first snowfall of the year in the Yorkshire Dales.

Photographer Thomas Beresford took the footage on Wold Fell near Hawes on Tuesday morning (November 3).

He tweeted: "It is SNOWING in the Yorkshire Dales!"

Snow was not expected in the area today according to Met Office forecasts.

However, the Met Office forecast warned of 'chill conditions'.

The forecast said: "Wind significantly lowers the ‘feels-like’ temperature relative to the actual temperature, with even moderate winds significantly adding to the chilling effect.

"Strong winds can result in a severe and debilitating wind chill many degrees below the actual temperature.

"This effect will be enhanced in rain or wet snow.

"Without protection, prolonged exposure could result in frost nip or frostbite on exposed parts of the body and/or hypothermia.

"Poor visibility presents challenging route finding conditions.

"Visibility could be significantly less than 50 metres in all directions with few or no visual references, especially on featureless moors or plateaux. Distances become hard to judge and cliff or cornice edges can be difficult to recognise.

"These conditions require good navigational skills. There is a risk of white-out conditions when mist or fog is combined with extensive snow cover.

"Lightning is a significant mountain hazard which can result in serious injury or death. Mountain terrain often leaves one highly exposed to lightning strikes. Hail may give unpleasant conditions with torrential rain and localised flash flooding also possible, mainly in Summer months."
