    Just made it home, looks to be an inch of powdery and grainy snow fell at home overnight, whereas just left 4 inches of thick fluffy snow in Ruthin, North Wales which looked impressive in the valleys and the Yorkshire Dales were quite magical to drive through after deciding to avoid the m62. Was surprised how little there was coming East along from Penrith, although the a66 was closed, but no surprise there.

    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

    Afternoon met office update

    This Evening and Tonight:

    A rather cloudy night is expected with most areas becoming dry and easterly winds continuing to slowly decrease. A sharp frost will affect most parts. Minimum temperature -4 °C.

    Monday:

    Monday a little brighter and although mostly dry, a few wintry showers possible in the east later. Daytime thaw of lying snow across lower ground. Further less severe frost overnight. Maximum temperature 5 °C.

    Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

    Tuesday similar to Monday, but less cold with continued thaw of lying snow. Breezier and milder on Wednesday and Thursday with some rain in places, but also some drier periods.

    I made it to Manchester and back.

    Seems that many parts around there and now down south have had the big events this time rather than us.

    Snow flurries here with less wind.
    It's still freezing at -0.2 but that's the highest all day.
    I see a lot of places are now just above.
    As the wind from cold source drops away, the North Sea 'warmth' has more effect on the air coming inland.

    Ice warning issued

    Between 19:00 Mon 19th and 09:00 Tue 20th

    Ice is likely to form on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. This increases the risk of accidents, as well as injuries from slips and falls.

    Chief Forecaster's assessment

    After a clear start in many areas with the temperature falling below freezing through Monday evening, it will turn cloudier from the north, with the possibility of some wintry showers in places. The temperature may come back above freezing in some places for a time, but will fall below again where the cloud breaks. Therefore, ice is likely to form where untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths are left wet after snow melts during the day, or partly melted snow refreezes, and where wintry showers occur overnight.

    I really hope this current cold spell is the last but I think any meaningful warmth is still a long way off..!!

    Yeah the GFS has been very consistent since Thursday about a Northerly over Easter we shall see, I suspect it will get watered down a bit if it verifies,

    Thaw pretty much everywhere today, i am up gateshead way at work and very little snow here compared to home.

    With regards to weather going forward although a milder week ahead it is nothing to write home about... With average at best but after current cold weather it will be a noticble change.

    I am away in lakes easter weekend so was kinda hoping for some spring warmth to be honest.

    Main thing is a good dry spell next few days to dry things out.

    Nothing Doc, My daughter is at Gateshead at the minute and she said there's very light precipitation there, but she can't tell whether its very fine snow or drizzle its that light.Looking like Teesside might see something a bit heavier, can't guarantee that its snow though.

    The thaw has taken place, looking forward to some decent spring weather I hope although the GFS seems to think it's still winter. Need our old enemy the azores high to get its act together. Then bugger off again mid November
