Surprised it's not the worst- there can't have been many more frost-free winters than this one. There were only 4 air frosts recorded at Manchester Airport between December 1st and February 29th. The lowest temperature was -2C as well. Remarkable. Also no lying snow at all in most low-lying areas in the Manchester area all winter.

Morning all Yesterday was one of my favourite Meteorological Winter days of all time - no snowfall but -4c to start the day with a lovely sunrise, frost stayed on the ground at sea level all day,

One of the cold persuasion waiting for snow

You could apply that to gale lovers, why would you want a potentially destructive storm causing death, damage, disruption? You could apply that to thunderstorm lovers, why would you want a severe

2013-14 was worst, there were only 3 air frosts and hardly any sleet/snow reported.

I counted 6 air frosts for Manchester Airport and the lowest was -4C on the 2nd December. I actually recorded 13 air frosts at my location.

Just had a recount and yes there were in fact 6 within the winter period. I hadn't realised 2013-14 was quite that frostless. There can't have been many worse than this winter for air frosts though. That said, there were a few in November and we've also had a few already in March.

Didn't record one single air frost here on the Essex coast, the 1st time that has happened since I've been recording from 1983/84. Dismal winter and it's a toss up between this and 2013/14 what is worse!

This one was worse than 2013/14. At least then the snow managed to settle in the office park in Leatherhead temporarily! ??
