If the ground temperature is zero or below, snow will settle readily even on damp surfaces. If th snow is heavy enough, it can even settle on surfaces which are slightly above freezing.

Yep - Back in January it was raining for hours and then the cold air undercut, it turned to heavy snow and within minutes everything was white. 

Wet ground does not stop snow from settling, dew points being above freezing however does.

5/10 snowfall here now, settling a little on some surfaces, I wasn't expecting anything but rain at this level so i'll take it!

10 mins up the road in rainham at 400ft ASL and its raining. Crazy how marginal it is and how elevation doesn't seem to matter. Its snowing here at sea level in east London right now.

Considering I'm a motorcycle courier, staying home today seems a wise call seeing as my day is spent around Surrey, south and east London. Do not want to be caught out if the weather turns wintery! 

Do you ever stay out overnight for your job or are you out and back in a day?

Dew point just too high here. Looks like I'll be missing out again :wallbash: We're supposed to be moving house in the next year and I can't bl**dy wait.

Are you moving to higher elevation? or different location. It seems a lot of us snow lovers choose houses on elevation
