MORNING commuters from the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area are facing awkward conditions this morning with wintry weather arriving just after 4am.

The snowfall is making pavements very tricky but by 5am Fife Council's gritting teams had all the main roads treated.

A drop in temperature created the snowy start to the week and pedestrians are likely to find things most difficult.

There is a danger of snow showers throughout the day although these will later turn to rain.
