    Good inch of snow at home ? (Haddenham, Bucks) made the 2 half hours stuck on m40 worth it (kind of ?)

    Are you trying to wind us up?? fair play?? down here, we have to go to the other regionals to see snow pics?? thought a couple of days ago the se corner might get some surprises. Just put my shoulder out slapping myself on the back????

    Sorry, I had already gone to work when you posted and missed it until now. The highest points on Mendips is in and around Priddy/Charterhouse, there are some lovely walks and lots of public footpaths. Or if you don't fancy trekking cross country and risk getting lost, head to Stockhill Woods just outside Priddy, it's Forestry Commission so you can wander at will. There are broad, hard surface paths that criss cross the woods or you can wander off through the woods, plenty of parking there too. The woods are about 280 meters asl, so if it's marginal it's usually snow up there, being mostly conifer, when there's snow it's like walking through an alpine landscape ? This is what it looks like up there (don't get excited, this is a couple of years old).

    No worries, thanks for that though I’ll bare that in mind for future. Ended up having a short walk (compromised with the Mrs ?) and walked up Beacon Batch.

    There was a bit of sleet mixed in with the rain confirmed by a windscreen splodge test on the way there and then had a minute long ice pellet/soft hail shower of some sort, but that was all I got to see. Great views nonetheless and would definitely be amazing on a clear summer day.

    I see people in the model topics are getting excited for 'another' cold spell showing up at D7.. well just remember just 5 days the charts showed us submerged in snow and -10 uppers for today, but no. Not going to get too excited!

    Happy for the lucky few who had some snow today. For the rest of us... as long as the MetO keep maintaining this theme of colder conditions in February, I'm remaining optimistic personally:

    "As we head through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northerly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of snow to all areas and more widespread frosts." 

    Anyone who checks the Met Office 6-30 day forecasts regularly will know that's detailed by their standards. They're usually vague / undescriptive and cover all bases.

    Chins up, something is around the corner :drinks:

    Wonder if this one will break through... I won't be happy until I see snow outside my window.

    Ice is a hazard here already. The ground had no chance to dry up after the truly exciting rain this afternoon, 0.0c and frosty/icy.

    I hope some of that ppn can make it over the Welsh mountains, don't hold much hope though and even if it does I will most likely be in the gap

    Just an overnight dusting would be a start. Maybe from that stuff further north in Wales *IF* it makes it!

    Everything looks like it's dying as soon as it nears the Channel, anyway.

    All eyes on that line of snow in SE Wales. Hovering just above freezing here.

    • Week Ahead: Bimbling lows keeping the weather unsettled, showery and cool

      Low pressure is going to keep doing its thing during the upcoming week, rolling in from the Atlantic, then hanging around to bring days of sunshine and showers with occasional longer spells of rain. Read the full update here
