Not really the correct setup, we need a Cheshire Gap flow off convective setup

Yes I agree with that. Always thought welsh mountains etc would be in the way   However not to be downhearted  been decent as far as English winters are concerned

Went up into the northern Peak District today. Very little snow to speak of below around 300m but higher up it was winter proper. Attempted Snake Pass from Glossop but the conditions up there were horrendous with blizzard conditions and I was sliding all over the place, so decided to head back down again. I was then treated to an early afternoon thunderstorm accompanied by pea sized hail, snow and strong winds which I watched from alongside Torside Reservoir :)

The Peak District really is a climate all on its own as even in some of the worst Winters these last few years they always seem to do alright around there. We're lucky I suppose (even more so if you actually live round there) its not that far away, although I personally have only visited a handful of times and only once did I go there looking for snow. This was in November 2015 but unfortunately at the time by the time I reached there, there was nothing left save for the odd micro patch :D.

Living on its doorstep I can be in Buxton in 40 minutes and so I am up there quite a lot. It is the best thing about where I live, despite the fact IMBY gets very little snow. You are right about its climate, with a lot of the area over 300m and some areas obviously much higher it doesn't struggle to snow over the Peak District and in some circumstances it can feel like you are in the Arctic. Today, I stood outside on top of Snake Pass and could only take 10 minutes before I could feel my fingers and face stinging with the cold (despite being fully kitted up with winter wear). The wind almost blew my car door off :D

Meto just updated warnings to go further east of our region. As far east as Northamptonshire and Leicester. A slushy cover of 1-3cm below 100m asl... but some areas will not see any. 

Personally, i think the latter but ice could be an issue

Seems rather pointless. Away from the far north and west of the UK, this is not much of an event.
