A cold clear day, With everything still frozen. A few shots while out walking earlier. Temp 0.4c Dp -1.9c WC 0.2c

METO should have followed the map 

Great Longstone at 11.00am this morning pretty difficult journey, what with fog and blowing snow very tricky approx. 20 to 25cms   also plenty of vids from Beeley Moor most are at 250m to 350mtrs

Ahh memories of 2010, cost me a blummin' fortune in roof and conservatory roof repairs due to the damage when 6inch deep solid ice slid off the roof!

Big downgrade from met on latest update has now got mainly sleet and light snow and rain from tomoz. Damm warm sector is much further north than forecasted i bet we are now seeing what they thought might happen when there was no warnings going out. Think only those with serious elevation will do well. Good luck everyone lets hope some of you are lucky. On a plus side thats 4 times i have seen snowfall this year so not that upset.

For 1990-2014 the average days of snow lying here in December is 1.76 days. But take out 2010 and it falls to 0.96. That year had almost half of the total in that 25-year period. 13 of those 25 years had 0 days.

that really is bloody useless!

We had nothing in Dec 2010 apart from 22nd Dec when maybe 2-3 inches fell overnight whereas everywhere else got 1-2 feet during the whole month

We had 9 inches here in West Wales took the train to Cov Christmas Eve 2010, nowhere had more than a foot the whole journey, generally 3 to 6 inches.

Wet moderate blowing snow falling in Stiperstones. We had a good dusting on top of the old snow at 4.00pm. Temperature was 0.6C. It rose to 1.6C and has fallen back in the last half hour to 1.4C.

He's probably referring to Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. They saw a good 1-2 foot of snow from streamers coming in off the North Sea. While Leicestershire saw a dusting. We did get around 3 inches later on in December though.

Very heavy snow here. Interestingly not huge flakes, perhaps 20p size but absolutely tonnes of them. Arn't the flakes usually huge in marginal situations ? I thought smaller flakes meant it was colder/less marginal..

I can vouch for that 35cm everywhere, and over 60cm in the garden in patches.

dp still -2 and temps 0.5

Some really heavy stuff on the radar incoming here. Should be here in about 30 mins.

I don't hold much hope of it being snow but evaporative cooling could be a factor if it's heavy enough. Probably be sleet at best though.
