-0.7c here now. Very very foggy! I'd say it's worse than yesterday. 

I don't remember a more foggy period of weather. I hate fog, it's completely pointless and just makes my commute flipping painful. 

Enjoying the frosts though!

Your all taking to much notice of these weather apps. They are next to useless and not meant for enthusiasts like us with time better spent on looking at radars and temperature gauges. My own take is

There's quite a rash of showers over Japan, they might make it this far?

Good morning everyone .  Just before I post  The amazing to weather phenomena that I've witnessed this morning ,  I'd like to say Ian Ferguson  if you read this and see this picture you have

-1.5 °C here. Would you believe it? It's foggy.

A few sub-records broken today. Lowest max gust speed, 4mph. Smallest humidity range, 1%. Lowest wind run, 2.6 miles.

I can't remember a winter like this one at all... it's so weird  :fool:. A good weird though.... the rain can keep away. It's been cold for over two weeks now hasn't it? And frosty on and off for at least one - that's been unheard of it recent winters. 

Currently 0.6c and no fog here at the moment.

How about this for a temperature difference? Here's it's -4.8C, but about 2.5 miles away in Sidmouth it's +7.3C as milder air has arrived off the sea. No doubt a very strong inversion above me and it's +5.3C on the ridge 2.5 miles to my west at 155m asl. I notice fields on the hill to the south appear to not have frost above a certain level.

Might get a sudden temperature rise this morning when the southerly breeze displaces the cold air in the valley (currently just going over the top).

We had fog yesterday (just below freezing at first but lanes in the village seemed wet not icy) which did break up around late morning before coming back by 4:30pm. It cleared again at some point last night and now there's none apart from a few thin layers/patches above valley level (possibly to do with the inversion boundary).

Morning all, it got a bit murky here last night but not full on fog like some of you have had/got. Must have cleared through the night as woken to clear skies and a frost again this morning; overnight low of -1c, temperature hasn't started rising yet.

-3.9C currently under gin clear skies and calm conditions. Probably the last frost of this type for a while as cloud and a cold wind is likely to displace this weather type by tonight. Rain likely by the weekend too, now that's something a bit different.

 Hello everyone ,

 Following on from my last post of the extremely localised snow /snizzle phenomena, here is a video  (  apologies in advance for my poor presentation and commentary as I'm not a professional ) 

 Just want you to see the extreme localised event .  All within the space of 100 metres.

 Good morning everyone .

 Just before I post  The amazing to weather phenomena that I've witnessed this morning ,

 I'd like to say Ian Ferguson  if you read this and see this picture you have my permission should you want to use this for this evening's points West broadcast .  

 Whilst doing the school run this morning I noticed there was a lot of black ice on the roads.

 Treacherous   Conditions out there this morning .

 I have been fortunate enough to witness and photograph and amazing double rainbow Sundog .( My terminology is probably incorrect )

 The second phenomena is that it was snowing and had been all night in such a small area a small village called old Ford near Frome.

 I have taken some photos of all of this and I hope you enjoy  much as I did when witnessing these occurrences. 

  My terminology is probably incorrect again and it seems  quite similar to a snits all photo that Ian showed from me on points west a few years ago .  That occasion it seemed to snow for a couple of days leaving it quite deep and on today's event it looked like it had been snowing all night as was a good covering .

 On my return journey from the school run I did a video with my phone attached to the steering wheel  to show just how local this snowfall was .  It was still snowing on my way back which I think can be seen during footage . 

 Anyway ,  enough rambling on from me .   I will now post the photos and hopefully the footage will fit too.

Circumzeinithal arcs I think they call that don't they ? A damn good catch, well done. As to the snow consider yourseld one f the few in this forum lucky enough to have seen snow in the winter of 2016/17. (Apart from Karlos, who saw it deep in the bottle of his lager bottle the other night!)

A low of -3.7°C and still foggy. I wonder how low it could have been under clear skies? That's 60 hours of continuous fog now..

Temp: -0.9°C - Hum: 98% - Dew: -1.2°C - Bar: 1028.11hPa - Wind: Calm.

Super photos offerman! Looks lovely. If only it was setting the scene for a proper upcoming snow event.

Another frosty morning here (for a change) and lovely sunshine to go with it. I'm not ready for anything from the Atlantic yet. That can come in spring!

Can't believe I missed this, I live next to the rugby club which is spitting distance from old ford, I did see early this morning Cristals falling but didn't think much of it

Offerman ; that snow would almost certainly have been caused by crystallised freezing fog. It is very rare!

Kinda like this morning ( and earlier this week) when looking outside I could see "Diamond dust" falling and picked up by my garden spotlight.

Sun is really trying it's best now to burn this fog off.
