    Went to the Pennines in the end. Should have gone to Teesdale, but there wasn't time, so settled for Weardale. Couple of shots...  

    Here you go... I ventured fully out. 27991638_1593131500722016_1995411088115499008_n.mp4

    Amazing view from mine right now moon and an angry orange sky!

    The bushes have drips on them now rather than fresh snow. What's falling is snow indeed, but the thaw is on.

    Just plain old rain here now, enjoyed this cold spell but longing for some spring warmth now, wouldn't say no to a potent northerly though :D

    Yes we are heading to that horrible period of getting rid of the snow via a thaw, this time tomorrow morning i would expect a decent melt will have taken place.

    Already melting now in Aycliffe.

    This new week looking rather cloudy with periods of showers and rain, still chance of snow on higher ground and temps around average or just below.

    Spring warmth looks to be little way off yet, wouldnt take much to get another cold blast but as suggested above a decent northerly blast would be better. Not seen a proper northerly for some time.

    Hopefully easter may bring some spring like weather.

    Fresh snow overnight but think it's starting to melt today. 

    Got a trip to Billingham later but not sure if I should go with the chance my car, instead of my daughter, ends up ice skating

    I have to say that this winter has been exceptional for the amount of snowfalls here, spread out from November to now March.  I have lost count.   None of them have been much depth here, with the maximum being 4" depth from Monday night.

    The amount of snowfalls from westerly approaching fronts has to be a record here.  Normally we get nothing this side of the pennines, but I have been surprised about 5 times this winter

    Also the amount of frosts must be up there with the most in the last 20 years.  

     

    Not kept any of this data.  Does anyone have any?

    Sorry 4wd but you're on your own! 

    If the charts currently forecast are correct, I think we will get intense heavy snow showers and snow depths would be impressive!

    The only thing missing from this winter is a severe spell, we've had more ice/frost than most winters I remember and 6+ light snow 'covers'. Because of what may be coming combined with how consistently on the cold side it's been so far could make this a stand out winter for me.

    Fingers crossed!

    Said the same thing almost 2 weeks ago in the build up to this now exceptional spell.

    Without records but in my opinion this winter has seen the highest amount of frosts/ice in my memory, say 70's onwards. The winters with a severe 1 or 2 week spell such as 81/87/91/09/10 from memory, were just that with no great amount of frosty nights outside of the severe spells.

    I've never needed to de ice the car as much!

    Me and the lads have never had a winter with as many icy bike rides!

    Day's with double figure temps have been very few and far between, I've known winters with barely any frost and weeks and weeks of double digit day's.

    Unless my thermometer is wrong the general theme of below average temps has been going on since last June.

    Surprised you only saw 4", luckily we saw around double that with canny drifting too!

    The cloud bringing the light snow around 4am seems to have held us avoid a lot of Ice thankfully air temp is just above 1c and the dew point is around 0

    Starting to light snow here again, surely this is the last as the band of ppn moves through in next couple of hours.

    Still a slight thaw outside of snow that fell this morning

    Heavy snow currently in Peterlee - large as cornflakes. Sticking to the cars, etc. I guess this will be turning to rain soon.

    A nice lovely scene in darlo but the thaw is on all icicles dripping profusely. Im quite pleased to be fair. This has been an excellent cold spell with the coldest 850's since the 80's but I am now firmly in spring mode and I want some sunshine.

    I've lost count of how many days we've had snow falling this winter. As mentioned above, what has made this winter stand out is just how many snow events there have been. They've not been huge, aside from this week, but it's been far more frequent than in recent memory.
