    Not a chance this far north. Uppers are still very low 

    Unlikely yes. But I’ve seen stranger  things and someone is reporting rain.

    Exactly. I know what freezing rain is, but uppers across NW are too low right now. Must be snizzle or snow pellets which appear rain-like

    Check xc weather. Manchester airport!

    Has been a while reporting this, even reported hail showers whilst the snow was falling here this morning. I think the obs have been dodgy, IMO.

    With the cold spell looking like ending sunday i implore anyone needing a snow fix, esp in manchester to take the short trip up to Oldham saturday if you would like to see what huge snow drifts look like, i finish my shift tomorrow and i for one will be heading up to Saddleworth to have a look round, there are apparently houses on Plattin Road Lydgate with snow drifts up their bedroom windows exposed to the winds, its high ground at around 300m but there is higher ground in Oldham but i suspect the roads will still be impassable by saturday (Holmfirth Road etc).

    Spare a thought for a snow lover on a stretch of the coastal area of Dyfed and slightly inland around Aberystwyth at this moment. Then you would have something to complain about.

    You should have gone there for the start of the week, you'd be killing it for snow now - you'd be out doing even us in the pennines in terms of level snow.

    Park was only supposed to open today, but  all the water pipes are frozen. M62 closed anyway. I’ll have to live vicariously through my friends FB posts (all non Wigan friends posts anyway)

    Looking at the latest radar, the rain/snow shadow is in full affect..

    If I'm honest, I'm ready to throw the towel in on this winter.  

    Could do with some warmth on my old bones..lol

    I just took a quick beer-run to the garage and got blasted by powdery snow, it's absolutely bitter out there with the wind. Back to watching the C5 Snowstorm special.
