Another grey sub zero day with a 'high' of -0.6c and still a good snow cover. There were some v.light snow showers around the middle of the day.

The wind has now picked up due to the incoming front and it feels bitterly cold.

Coldest night of this solid snowy spell at -2.3c

Max today was lower than most days this past week at 0.4c

Wind become fresh/strong with drifting of lying snow,really dried it out from the SSE and blowing it all on the roads,only a brief patch of light snow late morning yet.

Currently watching some drifting on our lawn in the strong gusts of wind.

Down on by the severn the snow is a wet feel to it and thawing slowly.
