yes, I'm about 15 miles SSW of Swindon and it's snowing steadily, a thin covering in places with (fingers crossed) plenty more to come

snowing here too but flakes way to small and not settling

Still quite light snow here but it has reached the 'nestled' stage on the lawn; the spaces between the blades of grass are filled with snow now.

Just saw a line of about a dozen people walk by outside in heavy winter gear, fellow enthusiasts I wonder? :drinks:

It worked again.... you couldn’t make it up lol 

I won't count my chickens yet mate....if things develop further south and east as forecasted then my thin covering will pale in comparison as to what you guys along Dorset/Som/Devon and Cornwall will get later

Heavy in Weymouth now but only settling on a few cars. Anyone have a reason why we're not seeing this settle properly?

Was mild this week, ground temperatures are very different to last time. They must have dropped here in Glos, as fine snow is starting to settle. Same should hopefully happen where you are..?

Something I've noticed here in Exeter - any melted snow from earlier has now frozen on most surfaces, and a lot of the snow that's falling disappears between showers. That is not to say that it melts, but it appears to sublime (where it changes state instantly from solid to gas). Is it possible that this could be happening with low dewpoints and very dry snow? I can't see much evidence of dampness where the snow was. Though it does seem to be remaining in certain places more than others.

It will take time for warmth to get out of the ground. That's why I have been hoping for heavy snow as this would put a layer between it and the ground and settle more readily 👍

I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o'er vales and hills, 
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host, of golden daffodils; 
Beside the lake, beneath the trees, 
Fluttering and dancing in the blizzard-driven snow from a ferocious Easterly,
And a French kiss
]

]
Ten thousand saw I at a glance, 
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. ,,, their heads almost falling off in the blast

why are the flakes so small? :(

Dry continental air; flakes dont have much moisture so crystals dont bind together to form large flakes....i think:D
