Thursday 24th January 2013:

A notable feature of this lengthy cold spell here has been the persistent cloudiness, only a couple of short spells have seen cloud breaks, when that did occur on the 16th and 22nd the temperature plummeted over the snow cover.

Another mostly overcast night, icy and frosty. Low just –1.0c with –2.2c on the snow. At observation, overcast with a few snow grains. Mean snow depth 8.5cm 85%.

Another cloudy night, with a slight thaw for a few hours, though re-freezing later. There was a little light snow, which gave just a sprinkling over the old cover. Low –0.3c around dawn. At observation, overcast, very icy, the odd snow grain falling. Mean snow depth 8.5cm 90%. Light snow commenced around 09:30 GMT. Mainly light snow then continued until early evening, though very little additional accumulation as the temperature climbed a little above freezing.

Clear intervals and a slight frost last night.

Cloud soon broke up around dawn with a sunny but cold day, only a slight thaw. 5cm snow cover remaining generally in the garden and on surrounding fields, although south facing slopes are clearing. Light ESE breeze.

Clear and frosty this evening.

A year ago today, mild westerlies for most, cooler in the north and east.

...9 days later, a strong easterly flow was examined over most of England and Wales. A very cold spell with ice days for many in the south.
