  1. Never felt anything, some people here saying they did, some didn't, weird
  2. Feb 2009 was a bit hit and miss; plenty of thawing during the days being topped up by snow at night is what I remember. Better than Feb 2005 by a long way, but not quite a classic. It didn't do anything special depth wise (5cm max on 3rd), but at least what snow fell generally settled. Although February hasn't been any more likely than Jan or Dec to be completely without lying snow in recent times, it has been notably lacking in heavy/deep falls. The last time we had 10cm+ in Feb was 1994; the greatest since then was 7cm in 2007.
  3. Just light rain here although I might have missed a sleety bit or two. Front seems too fragmented to produce much of anything.
  4. It would count as a snow lying day if it fell at 8.55am! The official definition is 50% of the ground covered at 9am GMT (remember that's 10am after the clocks go forward) But of course individuals are quite within their rights to make up their own definitions and statistics. I always like to note days with lying snow at 1200 GMT as well, to show how well the snow lasted once the sun came up. There was only one day that managed that between March 2013 and December 2017! This winter so far here: 12 days at 0900, 9 at 1200.
  5. Light snow shower just now
  6. Mixture of snow and small hail currently, no lying snow that I could see earlier the ground was just wet.
  7. It's all cleared from here and the snow cover has mostly gone, very February 2005-esque
  8. Just been outside to investigate, it has been sticking readily to anything not touching the floor- hedges, fences, cars, garden furniture- and its nice fluffy dry stuff there. On the ground it's only just begun to stick since the flakes got bigger and is wet slushy stuff. About 0.5cm everywhere but very weird. Was an air frost last night, no rain today so why is the ground damp and everything else dry and frozen?
  9. Same here as well! Dew point comfortably sub zero, it's even the dry powdery snow, but it's not lying at all. It's making the ground wet. Been no sunshine today that could have warmed the ground. What on earth is causing that? Oh hold on, flakes got a bit bigger and it is starting to go a bit white. But really not even marginal temp and dew wise, not been above 1C or dew above 0 all day.
  10. Flakes have got a bit bigger and more organised, still light but might be some life in this system...
  11. 1C and light snow again here, but just been to Telford and it was 3C there with no sign of snow at all, not even on the Wrekin. Still bits of this morning's dusting in places but nothing added to it as yet, it's still very light.
  12. Still have the sugar dusting from earlier; oddly there doesn't seem to be any visible frost or frozen ground despite having dropped below zero and being cold enough for light snow to stick.
  13. Dusting on the ground now, small flakes still coming down
  14. August 1912 and August 1956 to see how they really compared to those crap summer months between 2007 and 2012.
  15. Yes a few flakes drifting down here
