Despite temps and dew points below freezing there seems to be a very slight thaw at the edges of the snow. Why would this be so?!

Winds really severe overnight and this morning. Trees down around Saddleworth, one car got smashed by a falling tree driving just outside Uppermill. Luckily he was alright if shaken.

I know these charts get plenty of stick but this one was remarkably accurate for the distribution if not the depth of snowcover

I don't think the residents of Swansea will agree with that chart. Cardiff is buried, Swansea nothing. Incredible how local variations can make such a difference.

Some strange weather phenomenon at the moment. Radar has precipitation hugging cornwall coast but not crossing land also not moving from welsh coast even though wind will be pushing it

That's lake effect snow over the Irish Sea. Cold air passing over the relatively warm water. The east cost of Ireland is getting plastered as a result.

We are under a warning for wind and snow. Wind warning is spot on (if a little late!) but I cant see any chance of snow today sadly :sorry:

This was put on UKWeatherworld by a member called AnotherWeatherEnthusaist

""Police say wind speeds over the Rakewood Viaduct in Greater Manchester had reached 90mph"

I was unlucky enough to be caught up in the M62 chaos. Tried leaving Milnrow (jct 21) on the M62 around 11am to get back to Leeds. During the course of the next 11 hours I tried to find an alternative route. Gridlock traffic everywhere. I eventually gave up and took upon an epic drive to get home - M62 (westbound), M60, M6 (south), A50 to Derby, then followed signs to Nottingham, to join the M1, then up to Leeds. Got home at 01:30 this morning, after been up since 04:30 the previous morning!! 
I was just to the lee side of the Rakewood Viaduct and obviously a Foehn effect was in force due to the easterly crossing the Pennine chain. I hate hysteria and the mainstream media sensationalising, but conditions around there were truly bad. A snow drift trying to leave Littleborough on the A58 was about 9ft high partially blocking one side of the road and the wind was whipping the snow around to near constant white-out conditions. Crazy! "

 

 

Jeez, why didn't the Met Office issue a red for the Peaks and Pennines?

If that’s 30-60% for each hour, then it should snow for around 6 hours of that period.
