10 hours ago, I remember Atlantic 252 said:

Jan and Feb are over rated, might see some snow in March or April though, but this season good, but a poor version of 2010-2011, that winter finished around Jan 9

I don't see how you believe Jan and Feb are worse winter months than March/April. That is simply not true, however you try and frame it. Yes, we haven't had a good Feb in a while, but that is just because the synoptics haven't came around at the right time, if we had March 2013 conditions in Feb, it would have been more severe.

A few patches of snow left but a shower of very wet snow in the early hours melted most of it.

Bright, cold and breezy start to the day before wind and rain rolls in tonight. BBC show a spell of snow here initially but I think that's unlikely.

A white dusting of snow over everything this morning, bitter cold wind. Clear skies at the moment apart from some showers building over to the west of us over the Welsh mountains.

Light dusting, grass still looks green, temps at 1.2c, but expected to reach 7 or 8 degrees overnight with the wind and rain.

Some drifting of the snow in exposed areas. Nothing major but I've just been out onto the moor and there are drifts of 30-40cm against the walls. I'd imagine the really high and exposed areas like Snake Pass or Morridge Top might be a bit tricky.

Last nights shower didn't settle on ground but left a layer on cars which froze overnight.

Pehaps a few flakes over night as it looks like a bit of sugar on the grass.

Temp now at 3C and sunny though still quite breezy, with some high cirrus just beginning to move over from the west.

MIA.

All looks over now. Think this winter could almost be over if weather keeps up like this. Cant see where we are going to get any significant snow.

Maybe some more sleet and snow showers later Thursday and during Friday. Wind direction looks better for here. NW instead of WNW.

The low showing up now on radar looks way further South and could bring the worst wind and gusts and maybe snow high ground North Mids.
