    Those asking for photos of ice storms do realise how stupid a request that is? Windows will be covered in ice. The only time you can get a good photo of an ice storm is from outside and nobody should be going outside until after it's ended. Just wait.

    And that is why, wayyyy back in the conversation, I mentioned that you will seldom find video of the actual event. Only the aftermath.

    No sign of freezing rain in Wembury, SW Devon.  I've been waiting for two hours to say what was happening as an intense radar shadow went over, but they keep evaporating just before they get here.  I think it is mainly old snow blowing around in the wind now. Air temp -1.3c, DP -1.7c.  With the way these showers are disappearing, it looks to be about it for a while. There is one more shower maybe about an hour away, but I'm not expecting it to do anything different to the others.  More snow would have been great, but at least it looks like we won't get the freezing rain.

    What a fantastic snow event here in soton the LP tracked further east and gave us a good dumping. Temp rising quickly now. Heavy precipitation seems to be stalling on the isle of wight which i think is good as it feels as though rain is more likely. Guessing that back edge of precipitation is the warm front and dont want to get on the other side of it. Hoping it slides away west with minimal ice to melt/ruin the snow

    Stevede4 that looks good  I work in a care home in Old Sarum so glad I got next couple of days off.

    I've just seen a gritter AND a plough going up the road to Amesbury, so I'm guessing that high, open area around High Post is a mess...

    Re freezing rain, I’m sure it happened at some point in December 2010 and the M27 near Southampton Airport was shut for a short time. Can anyone else remember this?

    Yes it happened in Axminster, one minute it was raining and the next everything was covered in ice, I saw icicles form infront of my eyes from the shed roof, cars were skidding all over the roads. That was in 2010

    Incredibly rare, thank you and to Matt too. Stay inside, make sure you have airflow from your homes and like I advised Mapantz, put a little vaseline (if its not too late) around the moving parts of windows. If your front door is a tight fit, open it when safe then put some vaseline around the frame and the door latch..

    Here in the East of Ireland this is what our Met people have to say:

    The snow that’s on its way could be “record breaking” according to RTÉ weather presenter Karina Buckley.

    Speaking on Liveline in the past few minutes, she said that the previous record snowfall was 49cm in the 1960s.

    It could reach 50cm tomorrow.

    This evening they mentioned "copious amounts of snow". I have never heard the word "copious" mentioned with regards to snow here in Ireland.

  • Location: The Purbeck Microclimate, Dorset.

    Met Office forecast is a bit of a kick in the teeth when you see what's going on outside. However, it's been a good day! 15 - 20cm would be in the ballpark of what snow fell. The backdoor is still drifted up, approx. 2ft. I dread to think what state it will all look in tomorrow, especially after this freezing rain!

    • Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
