    still light snow here with accs of 2-3 inches.....dewpoints are still marginal here so real extra acc's as snow cover is still thawing as quick as new snow lays....hopefully this will change as we go into the evening with dewpoints expected to fall further

    Looking at the rain radar it looks like it pushing back north, can anyone else confirm this or is my eye sight really rubbish!

    If it wasn't for the rain around 10am we would have more settling! Been snowing lightly all morning apart from that, but it is struggling to stick.

    Pleasant surprise though! I've managed to make a snowball and throw it at the dog for his first time.

    The weather radar is going to have to show some intensifying of the precipitation then if that's going to become reality! 

    Pepping up in the channel.

    More rain than snow here, very frustrating, 

    Any news on whether we will see any proper snow later?

    GFS has it snow all night into tomorrow here. Then an ice day finishing in -5C at drive time. Tomorrow will be interesting.

    Wasn't loading for me, but just loaded back up

    So close to being all snow, in the heavier bursts it does start to settle, but when it goes lighter there is more rain than snow so melts it all.

    Dew points have been our downfall today, such huge amounts of snow falling since 3am here but struggled to build up as much as it 'could' have, if all had accumulated I reckon we would have a foot!

    Still a pretty decent event mind and a good covering just a bit wet in places at 80meters asl, though a real solid blanket above 150 meters.

    Just started snowing again, and hopefully the Dew Points can fall enough to let it all settle as we move to evening and give a nice crisp topping overnight.
