Motorists are being warned by police to allow extra time on journeys as snow builds up across the region.
Drivers should be aware of icy patches, snow on the roads, and slippery surfaces. Police say drivers should moderate their speed and keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front.
Main roads are passable but secondary roads, particularly in Gateshead and Newcastle, have coverings of snow.
