About 6cm left now where I am but none in the town centre apart from shaded areas and the sheet ice pavements. Lansdown hill looks to have a lot still!

Visiting my parents in Surrey where there is very little snow.  I expect to return home to a slush fest later this evening, as the temps rise and the rain arrives!

You're absolutely not alone. Oldie on the outside, big kid on the inside and no intention of trying not to be, quite happy to let the grown ups get on with being grown up but it's not for me, far too dull and boring. 

Thanks jethro my sentiments exactly. I’m called ‘Fun’ granddad by my 3 young granddaughters (well 2 of them the other is 1 yr old ? but she knows) as I’m the nutter that does mad things with them. Snow covered roads and everyone indoors not me we are on the way to the nearest hill sledge in hand ? they keep me young at heart bless em. I’m only mid 50’s anyhow so not quite prehistoric YET !!!

In all fairness still a lying snow day up here,4 miles down to the town it diminishes,cant get a true ASL for here too much fences to jump to get it,but about 135 ft,interested to see Redlynch at nearly 3 times the height,guess Downton and Godshill,the other local weather centres probably higher also,be interested to find that out.Anyway,allow the snow melt to wash through the river,mild conditions,colour in the water,ideal float fishing conditions for roach lol.

It was bananas around Kingsclere, North Hampshire on Friday. Around 2pm, it just hammered down with snow and didn’t let up at all. We’ve still got around 10 - 12cm lying on all surfaces.

Seems most of north Hampshire was hit quite hard that day. This end of the county I didn’t get anything on Friday and most of Thursdays snow had melted by the end of the day.

A good 4-5 inches still near Winterslow, Wiltshire at about 130m asl. I was surprised as the sun felt warm and I was expecting it to melt sooner.

That's mad, traffic chaos still. Apart from a few spots in the garden where the sun doesn't reach at this time of year the snow is all but vanished. 

Yes it's obviously the extra height. I went down to a milder Cornwall today but there was still some snow piled up on a few of the roadsides, not something I've seen in mid Cornwall for a while. 

As much as I'd like us all to get some of the white stuff, I'm always extra pleased for our Cornish neighbours.

I'm sure it will be gone by morning especially with all the rain forecast ?. I think only the snowman will be there with a few patches in the shade. Just did a picture with the flash outside and there's not much left ?.

It's been a great long weekend and it defo wouldn't have been as good without all of you guys. Cheers ?

After a very cold start and a crisp morning. The snow is now disappearing, kind of an odd thaw mind,  not really any dripping it’s just kind of evaporating.

All in all a blooming fantastic snowfall, and definitely the heaviest falling snow I have seen in at least 10 years. Friday morning was epic in terms of visible falling snow,  just about made 4 inches in about 3/4 hours (on top of the 2 inches that had fallen overnight)

Here to the next one eh.

And so the hunt for the next cold spell is officially on!

Still a good 5-6 weeks left of cold hunting to go, and I got a feeling we might see something else turn up around months end but for now looks like a mild unsettled week to come.

currently 4.3°c, dew point 2.9°c

1020.8mb, rain 3.0mm from snow melt!

Well, not quite the slush fest when I got home, but a rapid thaw will be well on the way by morning.  Still, 3 days of lying snow with no deep cold isn’t a bad effort.
