Another 1.5cm of fresh snow since 0900 although the overall depth hasn't increased by that much as the existing snow cover slowly compacts under its own weight.

Currently overcast with light snow and a temp' of -2.4c.

Yes, it looks as if there is a general warming of the atmosphere across the UK. Warmer air moved north from the Benelux region last night and the north of England drew across slightly warmer air from the North Sea yesterday ahead of the snow. This slightly warmer air which has maritime roots is now spinning around the UK. So its a general environmental warming in situe.The only way we can obtain colder air is to see a new blast of easterlies or if the atmosphere dries out and clears of cloud. Look for either of these scenarious for a continued cold period. If neither come about then precipitation will continue to turn to sleet and then rain as it has done in the northwest and northern ireland at times recently.

No snow at all on east coast of NI. Green grass all around. Sleet falling and a near gale force wind. Inland and upland areas doing v well. But for me this cold spell is a major let down. Not even a frost. 2010 delivered 8 inches here. Couldn't even get 1cm this time.

4th consecutive day of snowfall, totals right now are around 4-6cm at best away from where it's been heavily walked on/melted. Quite something for around here.
