    So about 10 of the last 24 hours have brought temps of 1*C and mostly rain with a bit of sleet here and there.

    Given a few reports of snow to the south of me at what appears to be similar or even lower elevation, it appears all I need is a bit of added intensity to the precipitation - but the radar is so messed up this morning that I can't really tell what's coming my way. I can see these heavier pulses moving through London but then there's a cut-off not far to the SW beyond which it all looks light. Which is the real deal?

    Then there's the extremely dodgy Dean Hill radar cutting a hole in the observations. It's all guesswork going forward!

    Must say though, this has been in the top 3 most miserable spells of winter weather I've had to endure this past decade.

    When one looks at the chart synoptically and checks the date, you do wonder what it will take to get it to snow properly round here! At least I got about 30 minutes of genuine snow from a heavier burst - maybe you'll get some before the day is out :)

    I’ve seen lightning to the SW from up here in NE Somerset. We have had a few sleety snowy showers over recent hours when the wind really whips up but nothing of note. Incidentally I am not a lover of

    I got soaked on my walk to Downton earlier. It was just cold, wet and horrible.:angry:
    I wouldn't even call it sleet. It was just a filthy mess.

    @Singularity The OH drove across the forest towards Totton at 7:30ish and said it was snow from Woodfalls, with a bit settling.
    Looks like that bit of extra height did the trick.

    Snow has almost stopped blue sky in the distance. Bit of a Brucey bonus I'd say. Just off to work think I'll go via Princetown....

    Here in East Devon, Dorset border area the cold snap has been characterised by very strong winds. Yesterday sustained gales from WSW today a biting and gusty NNE wind. Not a flake of snow here, a touch of sleet perhaps... There was a stage where it was snowing to the north of us,the East of us and the West (albeit on the moors). Still early in the season so hopefully our time will come ?

    Blowing a near gale up here. Windchill must be immense. All stopped now. Light dusting in Princetown nothing more. Suppose I best get to work....

    frontal band moving away east now so snow has stopped......can't complain as we've had the first 'spell' of proper snow here since Jan 2013.....still plenty of snow on the ground despite the thaw with probably 3-4 inches of acc snow over the past 24 hours

    After this mornings wet snow (which was welcomed to see) I needed more of a snow fix. Ended up at Butser Hill which is only up the road from me to find a beautiful covering of snow!

    It was snowing quite heavily and settling at Cheesefoot Head on the A272 coming in to work in Winchester I guess due to the slightly higher elevation.

    Horrendous in Winchester now. Gloomy and wet.

    Amazing what a bit of elevation will do. When I left Horndean this morning I was wandering what all the fuss was about until I got to Butser on the A3 and it was really coming down!

    Yeah I had a message from a friend saying Butser had a good covering this morning, so took no time in rushing up there! Thank goodness I had a free morning! 

    Talking about it feeling raw, there was a very marked wind chill up there!
