    Not even on the grass on top of existing snow cover? I don’t expect it to settle too much on concrete.

    Think it is a matter of not throwing it down hard enough. If ground was frozen solid you might get a bit of cover. Ground too warm for that to happen.

    Blob looks good but seeing all these reports I don’t expect it to settle apart from on lying snow on grass - still chance for this evening where it might be colder so I’m hopeful

    Nail on head right there. To think on Friday I was sitting on the seafront in pleasantly warmish sunshine.

    Managed 4cm here in NW London, with more in the (small) drifts. Some melt on the pavements, bit still plenty on the grass. Hoping for a cm on existing cover from this emerging 'blob'. Will spring finally arrive? Not until Easter Monday if the GFS is in anyway correct
