-14 in Bramhall Village, measured on my garage roof. 0800. That has to be a record. I can only ever remember seeing -10 around here once before, that was in 99 or 2000 I think.

For those that want to know, if you walk out into it, it feels a little chilly. Makes your eyes water.

Its not the coldest I have ever experienced, that was -21 in Aviemore in the late 90's sometime. That was something else. I then placed a bottle of mineral water on the car roof, and watched the ice form in it !.

Good morning!

Astonishing temperatures across the region! -12c in Manchester city centre! I think the coldest I managed last winter was

-6 and that was a reasonably cold winter too!

As for any more snowfall, it is worth watching that little trough, currently to the east of Scotland. This is moving slowly southwards but the more dominant low to the south of it is going to shift it southwestwards and it should cross our region tonight. Obviously, most of it's energy will be felt to the east of the Pennines but it might keep some precipitation for us too.

The gfs 0z, doesn't show it making over the Pennines but the UKMO does to an extend. So a dusting of snow is possible tonight. Let's hope the 6z will show this!

Both gfs and UKMO pick up a band of showers for tomorrow afternoon/early evening and then another opportunity on Saturday from the northeast.

So, loads to look out for in the next couple of days!

I was going to stride in here with my chest puffed out and announce that it was -12 in my garden at 6.30 this morning. Doesn't seem like a big deal now!

Can't see where this snow is coming from tonight but for the Beeb to mention it they must be pretty certain. She also mentioned the possibility of Sunday, at the moment its only forecast to get to the Midlands but it only takes a slight shift and were under a band of heavy snow and strong winds.

Well I did say last night, I wouldn't be surprised to see some areas get below -15!

Morning All :)

-14 on a personal station a couple of miles away from me was the min here last night. It's currently -9 ouch!

Beautiful day again - clear skies, hardly any wind and crisp underfoot. Amazing spell of weather!

Manchester Airport TAF is going for snow showers during the early hours

EGCC 070505Z 0706/0812 34004KT CAVOK PROB30 0706/0711 0300 FZFG VV/// PROB40 TEMPO 0801/0807 1800 SHSN BKN005

If that turns out correct, I suspect tomorrow morning won't be as cold as this morning but temperatures should dip away rapidly this side of midnight.

We got down to -6.0c last night, and it's currently -4.0c. Not as cold as expected - But will almost certainly be double that -6c tonight!
