    Dear Snow, Why are you just going to Staffordshire? All they have over there is oatcakes and speed cameras. Much nicer here, why haven't we seen you for 4 years? Remember December 2010? We had so

    Phew, made it......

    Couple of videos from my drive into the Peaks today when I had to turn round as conditions got worse. No doubt in something better I could have gone on but in a Citroen C2, I have to be careful as the

    Lots of cloud moving in, but no precipitation. And we still can't get below freezing with -10 uppers, something is going wrong with our weather. These have been noticeable since 2013:

    *Cold uppers not being reflected by ground-level temps. Uppers of -8 to -10 and +2 to +4 down below. 

    *Cold wind directions bringing milder air. It's been a constant theme with northerlies, now it's being forecast off an easterly too. What hope do we have for lasting cold and snow when this keeps happening?

    *Cold synoptics not delivering. Connected to the two above.

    *Temperatures not falling on clear nights. This has been the most unsettling of them all: it drops to freezing after sunset and then rises inexplicably during the night, it stays at 2C all night then drops briefly to -0.5 just before sunrise, or it constantly rises and falls between -2 and +2C. 2016/17 hasn't been as bad for this as the previous three (we got to -6C during that anticyclonic spell) but it is still happening.

    *No really cold days. Only two days since March 2013 with a high below 2C, and none below 0C. Even the runs of mild winters from 1988-90 and 1998-2000 did better than that.

    I hope this all gets sorted out this Feb/March!

     I sympathise. There's just no precip about for us in the west. Also, I bet your ground temps (progged 0 - 1) are being modified by a degree or 2 by the urban heat effect.

    I'm in a village 5 miles from town, so shouldn't have much of an urban heat effect- it seems that temps are just not as cold as they "should" be. But I have seen a few flakes tonight, so the uppers are playing ball...

    Can confirm it's lightly snowing here too. Settling a bit on some surfaces but needs to be heavier with larger flakes for a full covering. Better get some sleep now before work tomorrow. Question is will I awake to a Winter wonderland in the morning? Probably not.

    Light snow falling here on the Malverns, currently 0.4oC. Snow is sticking but at this rate it'll take awhile to cover things.

    A good covering here this morning,  I'm hoping it carries on through the day without turning to rain. I suppose we will just have to wait and see
