    Never seen so much snow falling, though wasn't really building up due to higher dew points. 

    Still got a huge dump of slushey snow this morning and now starting to settle properly at my level ( 80m asl), prob about 2-3 inches. ( Stroud glos)

    straight up the hill it a winter wonderland with 4 inches of much dryer snow.

    In the absence of the met office app which seems to be having issues the ‘trusty’ iPhone weather app looks interesting for here. 

    Also on there it should be 7°C now but it’s actually 4.8°C.

    Been snowing here quite heavily at times for the last 3hrs or so, but as yet, still not settled anywhere at all. 

    Flakes generally too small and wet.
