Well had a nice day in Summerseat/Ramsbottom today. Thankfully the rain stayed off all afternoon, and even saw the sun for a few minutes around midday. By the time I left most of the slush had gone except in shelter. Thankfully didn’t disrupt the ELR timetable. 

 Also @iand61 I think you can finish in the Europa league spots The way Arsenal are going.

Some heavy arguing this morning with patches of bickering at times. Very cold with a distinct  feel of unpleasantness in the air. Looking like a big improvement later with some intervals of sarca

Thaw setting in now! Some unbelievable scenes, still folk snowed in in places, imagine how this looked before the thaw and before being dug out when the snow was untouched!!  95BD1E10

Some self righteous folk on here it seems. Nature is nature is nature...that includes suffering/tragedy/ unfortunate events etc etc in any form of life, whether it be farming or in our daily live

Your quite low down there so no surprise that most of the snow had gone but up here it is still pretty deep in places and a lot of side roads are still tricky.

it looks like that’s probably it for heavy snow this winter although up here we seldom go through March and April without seeing at least a few snow showers but TBH all I want now is some sunshine and warmth to accompany the lengthening daylight.

as for Burnley’s chances of European football next season.

possible but we’ve a run of away games coming up and Leicester also have their eye on 7th so ask me again in a couple of weeks or better still in mid May.

Seventh consecutive day with snow falling, not bad going. We had some wet snow overnight which settled, but quickly thawed in the morning. A raw cold day further wet snow before lunchtime then just cloudy and grey.

The next few days will be typical March in feel, drab dull chilly wet at times, uninspiring, can we skip March and move straight to April now please..

Yesterday started off cold and dry, rained at about 10:00, turned to sleet, then snow presumably evaporative cooling at work, then back to rain and cleared up. Rest of the day was just... Meh....

Can't believe my county got this much snow

Cumbria probably has the widest range in terms of potential snowiness of all counties depending on where you are. The coastal strip from Barrow up to Silloth is probably as snowless as anywhere in the country in terms of decent settling snow, whereas Alston and Nenthead are the snowiest places in the UK outside of the Scottish highlands. The boundary between pretty bad and pretty good is around Keswick from my experience.

Good do.

I'll be over sometime soon when there's less kettles.

Didn't we have a similar incident a few weeks back when the BBC graphics were showing widespread snow which was at odds with all other forecasts? Haven't got time to dig back through the forum posts atm to remind myself. Metoffice not buying this at all.
