This is now pretty much the longest spell of continuous snow I can remember since moving here in 1992.   And still it falls!

I just said the same to my work colleague. Started later than planned but it’s made up for it and still falling in Swindon.

A significant has melted already in the haziest of sunshine this afternoon. Just wasn't cold enough this time so not a classic by any means, but still good. Didn't have to go far away to get more classic snowfall - the Blagdon/Chew Valley area has been lovely today. I wonder how much could've stayed if we'd had deep cold embedded ahead of this event.

Been dry and around 3.5c all day since mid morning.
Temp has dropped in last hour and its now 2.6c.
Just started to rain here last half hour, but has just turned to snow..

Been told its just started snowing North of me also in Locks Heath, where it also has been dry all day.

Yep, think the Blob has finished blobbing here now. Well done Blob, I say! :drinks:

Just been up on the Heath here in Poole Dorset for one last walk in the snow. Rapid thaw even at the top. Few flakes still blowing around.

Just travelled back down from Devil's Punchbowl at Hindhead. Plenty of snow up there, but starting to turn a but slushy there.

Coming back down the A3 had heavy snow most of the route and became a bit tricky around Butser. Visibility was very bad with driving snow up there. Roads were okay though.

Was steady rain with sleety bits in the centre of Portsmouth just now but I note the Met Office think is going to turn to snow again...

The sun was trying to peek through in Ringwood earlier, so I think we are done on this one! Lovely whilst it lasted, onto the next one!

24cm of level snow here in Chapmanslade Wilts. (snowed from 18.00 yesterday until now) Working today and driving on anything other than trunk roads was hard going. Country lanes, especially around Maiden Bradley had over 30cm on them and car was dragging along the surface most of the time.

Still snowing here although it appears to be rather wet snow so it’s not settling and what is still on the ground is disappearing even quicker.

Same as here in Poole, think it might be over this far south.
