THE first snowfall of the year caused tricky conditions for motorists and pedestrians today.

A weather warning had been issued and most parts of Inverclyde awoke to some snow this morning, with areas on upper ground worst affected.

The wintry weather eased off rapidly but council bosses issued a warning of possible disruption to school transport.

Tele photographer George Munro captured this photograph on Burns Road showing a bus slowly making its way up the hill.

Temperatures are forecast to lift slightly during the day and it should also brighten up.
