Netweather radar shows it as rain here but it's definitely snow, still coming down well but melting on impact, hoping the ground cools enough for it to settle.

Impressive drop of pressure on weather station since midnight 1000mb to 970.8mb! Think the 'eye' has just passed over as pressure just starting to rise.

Snow turned to rain for an hour but back to snow again, just measured depth here at 3". Best snowfall since 2010!

Just turned to snow in Warminster - at 3 deg C! (Falling temp though)

Snow cam fall with a temp upto 4c, if other factors are conducive for snowfall, remember hearing that in a bbc weather program years ago.
