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!

    Just drove to work from Westmoor to Byker and the roads are atrocious, even the main roads are very icy with heavy snow falling and snow blowing from fields and side streets, it got worse the closer it got to work, it will be chaos later at rush hour - take care

    Proper flakes? Sorry to bang on but it's literally just graupel and has been all night.

    There are proper flakes here during the short light showers.  No graupel at all.  I doubt you could get big flakes as the temp is so low and the wind blows them into small flakes.

    Ha! Just had a text from the kids' school saying school will be open today!

    That is crazy! Not a chance I'm tackling the A68 in this and my car is a 4 x 4.

    The streamer is heading north of Newcastle. The whole thing is moving slowly north.

    Might be right but when I ran the radar back I thought they might be at a different angle.

    The Sunderland council website is poor when trying to find out if schools are are closed, I eventually found via 

    https://www.sun-fm.com/schools/school-closures/ if anyone needs an update - I'm surprised that many more are still reported as open, noticed GoNortheast buses have cancelled services too - not much snow fell over Sunderland, (well not where I'm situated ) over night
