Well that would be rather odd. Ambleside gets about the same amount of snow as Windermere, and has had quite a few snowfalls, just like we have.

Some parts are as low as 56M, maybe lower.

Looking at previous posts, I think Ambleside is the location.

That'll be the low height and the snow-dome then.

Its within the snowy central lakes zone, we are just on the southern boundary and do well, when places a few miles south don't, just enough height, proximity to the fells and distance from the coast.

Ambleside is low-lying compared to Windermere though. Barmada_Casten might be about Clappersgate end which is just 50m or so. 

 

That said it's not a far walk to see any snow in that part of the world; so it's a bit disingenuous to present yourself as snow starved when a half hour round trip walk would get you to see snow when many parts of the region would have been left with a much longer walk last night.

Yes you don't have to venture too far to see snow in these parts. An hours walk from the valley floor can take you into a winter wonderland scene. Its only a 15 minute drive to Kirkstone Pass as well at 1500ft.

Aye, there's a trend on the Lakeland Passes for folk to ignore road closed signs....Been a few ...recoveries over the last 3 or 4 days....that's caught a few folk by surprise!

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: 'The Lakes look good for snow' LOL! We have pretty much missed out on everything for this and the last few winters!! :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Didn't the lakes get snow lastnight? There are far worse places than the lakes in our region for snow mate!

Aye in South Lakes we had a sprinkling, some places more than others. I'd say on balance where I live we probably have an above average hit rate for snow. Several minor events since last significant episode in March 2013

Ambleside v similar height asl as Coniston, snow overnight down to lake level first thing, but due to the showery nature of the ppn overnight it's hit and miss.

Having lived here all my life ...that's 50 years and spent a fair bit of time driving about and / Or in the hills I reckon overall apart from extraordinary situations the lakes will be as reliable as anywhere in England for snow, even at low elevations.

I can't think of a valley floor within the lakes at sub ~40m asl

Interesting days weather coming up dependent on which of the models you look at.

could be snowy, could be heavy snow.

on the other hand it could be rain or even a mainly dry day.

my heart says heavy driving snow with blizzard conditions, my head says a bit of sleet and cold rain with dry spells in between.

Currently staying at Whitbarrow Hall just of the A66 between Penrith and Keswick at around 1000ft.

Good covering of snow when I arrived yesterday and its snowing steadily outside now.

Went mountain biking in the snow at Whinlatter Forest yesterday. The views of Skiddaw and Blencathra were stunning.

The Met O app now has it turning to snow on its back edge for me. It's never showed that for this event here. Not expecting anything but interesing none the less.

I'm sorry but the new BBC graphics are very misleading, even Matt Taylor this morning had to cover his tracks by saying don't worry about the white here that's just snow on the hills! Well not everywhere is a hill so they need to sort that out as it's gone backwards! :nonono:

Its very marginal even at 300m asl but coming down nicely. Only an inch on top of old snow. (Between Keswick and Penrith)

I don't think it will snow here today. I'm expecting it be sleet at best by 12pm then it clears away.

I'm more interested for the potential cold spell end of this month.

The ECM easterly is really juicy and if it is then followed by an Arctic northerly I will be happy.

Sleet here all morning, occasionally tries to snow and leaves a thin cover then back to sleet. Ground is sodden.
