Morning all, it didn't turn to rain here overnight, it stayed as tiny snow flakes and gave an additional cm or so. Still flakes falling now and again, although there is a slight thaw going on with the snow sliding on the roof, it's still completely intact on the ground.

Thaw here now. Good job, I’ve had enough now. Never thought I’d say that! Roll on spring!! Fed up because I think I’ve fractured my wrist.

Thaw really set in now.  Goodbye snow!

Thaw going well here. Fields clear drifts to the edges but country lanes still blocked. The moor us slowly turning into a quagmire. Clean dog of the last week no more!

We’ve had a large number of Redwings pitch down yesterday on the south coast of cornwall. Feeding up before their long flight back North east of us.

Still some of the drifting snow hanging on in Salcombe, but the melt is well underway and I imagine it'll be more or less gone by this time tomorrow.

But what a spell of weather! Absolutely incredible. Some of the surrounding villages between Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Totnes got absolutely buried. Kingsbridge Police closed one of the roads near to Totnes Cross yesterday with 13ft drifts, and there were numerous other places that were cut off. Think it'll probably be another day before things start getting back to normal for them.

The winds yesterday morning were absolutely brutal again, and the coastal road at Torcross has been severely damaged which is devastating for the local community. It wasn't just ice and snow here that's for sure!

Now we need to keep an eye on flooding, already quite a few reports coming in this morning like Frogmore and other vulnerable places.

Morning all

Everybody out on the sloping side of our lane clearing drives,...including me! I would think about a level 10cm of snow where no drifting occurred.

Well a slow thaw is setting in here...Three ice days recorded on station, finally crept above zero about 5am, still no snow melt in rain gauge though!

Steady thaw continues here, nothing too dramatic. 

A real good snow event here, just short of the 2010/2013 events in the end so not "historic" for Portsmouth - but very glad to see a proper SW event as they are so elusive.

Hope we don't have to wait another 5 years for another!!

Yes no real thaw yet up here either jeth except on the roof of house etc

Might see abit more wet snow over next 24 hours on hills but nothing meaningful now.

Amused to see a comment or 2 referring to the sun as 'odd yellow thing in the sky'. It's only been Thursday and yesterday without sun, prior to that it was almost full on sun for 6 or 7 days with snow flurries interspersed earlier this week!

Well thats it :-( Went up above 0c here around 130 or something. Lots of drip drip going on. Trying to shove the kids out for a last play but they don't want to go!

I was well sad and wanted to cry for real last night when it all started melting for everyone. But today i'm ready for spring. Only a few weeks off of convection and thunder rumbles! Strap in for more summer fun! Whose in?? :-D

Time to go plant some seeds!
