It has been a cold end of April and snow has fallen on the hills around Wells today (April 30).
These photos were taken today in Rookham on the Mendip Hills just outside of Wells, as snow settled on the ground.
It did not get cold enough in the city itself for snow, as showers just blew through sending shoppers and the Becoming Elizabeth film crews running for cover.
Snow is not forecast in Wells or the surrounding villages as we move into May, though. Tomorrow (May 1) is expected to be sunny with showers moving in from 4pm, and then Sunday should be a fine and bright day.
According to the Met Office, the weather will take a turn for the worse on Monday afternoon though, with heavy showers forecast from 4pm to finish the bank holiday weekend on a damp note.
