    Absolutely vile day. Overcast and a strong wind howling, the type that cuts right through you. Grim.

    Unfortunately 'Grim' is the forecast in Crewe every day!

    Ground above about 600 metres has retained a snow cover since Sunday now, not bad going given we've had quite a bit of sunshine, proof the uppers since have been cold enough to maintain such cover. In some recent winter months, to get 5 days on the trot of such cover has been hard to achieve, so not bad at all at this early stage in the season.

    We've had a preety decent week overall since last Thursday deluge, a bit of rain, and a few showers but nothing on a par with regions further south. Again evidence of the southerly tracking jet which has meant we have been on the north side of any frontal systems and they haven't managed to pivot our way. Much of Scotland away from the east has also had such weather.

    Expecting some further light snow for the tops overnight, and don't expect the snow cover to go away in a hurry even though uppers do look like creeping up a bit later tomorrow and into Saturday.

    Another murky horrible day. Looks like it's half an hour before sunset no matter what time of day it is. Getting very bored of it now. Where's the sun?!

    problem is these awful E/NE winds, in 3 weeks or so we may see more sun as westerlies arrive, rainbands yes but traditional zonal can bring sunshine too

    We've had an awful year for luck I feel. Currently sandwiched between a high to our west and a high on the continent. I think we're long overdue a period of high pressure. Crisp sunny days and bone chilling nights. Yes please!

    Quite unlucky really, with a southerly running jet profile, you'd really expect to be seeing some cold air over the UK. Yes, parts of Wales & the SW had a period of snow the other day, and I have enjoyed the wind, rain and hailstone. But I would be expecting air from a much colder source with a jet profile like this!

    Coldest night of Autumn so far overnight low of -1.4c which has led to a beautiful cloudless start in South Cheshire and nice frosty scenes.

    @Day 10 wish I shared your thoughts for December I think it's going to be a mild December with yet more rain and flooding problems January who knows but I think this will be the month that winter arrives 

    C.S

    I reckon one of the warmest Decembers on record, GFS already hinting at the SW'lys returning around the 1st, certainly reckon warming up around then, Dec CET could be very high

    Not so sure if the warmest December on record would be off to a great start if this (or anything close to this) were to come off. ..
