Nice and fresh on the tops with snow becoming powdery & forming a glaze layer. -2C at present.

About 2 inches now.. Never expected this. 

Looks like someone was looking for an argument in here (and in other parts of the forum as it goes), those posts have been removed now, so please refresh the screen if you still see them.

Clear as crystal here...not a smidge of a mist patch in sight never mind fog.  Mind you the warning did exclude an area around here, so maybe they were spot on.  3c as well so no frost.

Surface chill under cloudy grey skies making for a cold late November day. Max 6 degrees now, if clouds clears this evening expect a widespread frost given the colder surface air and wind to mix it out. First day of the season that has felt 'wintry'. We are entering the darkest period of the year now. Still waiting for first proper snow on the fells, late this year, most likely will see it next week.

Already -2.4C here with a frost on all surfaces. Much colder than last night. Probably won't stay like that though as cloud is supposed to roll in later on.

Nothing here unfortunately, the northern hemisphere is shaping up quite differently to last Winter so the chances of a decent cold spell look a lot better so I'm quite hopeful. Living by the coast and very flat isn't great so a proper cold spell is always our best chance. I'm just wondering whether we could end up with an early taste of Winter next week with a real mixed bag of rain, hail, sleet & snow showers if this pattern could edge that bit further east?

Let’s hope so.

I know cold, snowy weather doesn’t suit everyone but it would be a lot feel a lot more festive and if severe enough may even override Boris’s ego and shut the damn schools early and help get the Coronavirus figures down.

As for the current; it’s a cloudy, damp, breeze start here.

not festive but certainly in sync with the time of year and current feel of things.

A cold late autumn morning, early frost and hazy milky skies. Cloud has rolled in but still fairly clear, far better than the dank gloom that has pervaded much of November, and far better than the usual deluge and gales we often see at this time of year.

Not much can complain about.

My interest is turning to the middle-latter part of the coming week, good chance first proper falls of snow for the fells this season. Latd in coming this year, who knows may even get it down to low levels. Last December we had a brief fall mid-month. Dew points, thicknesses, uppers will determine the snow line, if it's quite intense, evaporative cooling will take hold, and provided airflow is slack as suggested those temps at surface will drop markedly.

A North / South divide in the NW region today it seems, it's been dark and miserable here with persistent although not heavy rain all day. A day to stay indoors and the street lights will soon be on, given the lack of light. Yuk!

Yep, damp first thing but then light rain and drizzle throughout the day since and it never really got light.

as you say Yuk☹️

Interesting week coming up weather wise a bit of everything,second half of the week turning colder and yes for some places snow is a distinct possibility worth keeping your eyes peeled as the models firm up on this in the next few days.

Opened the curtains to the same grotty weather than we closed them to yesterday.

what a let down from a weekend that at least promised some usable weather for putting outside Christmas lights up.

never mind though it certainly won’t be the first time I’ve been wet this year and it probably won’t be the last.

Not-getting-light-properly season is here. I did see the moon peeking through the clouds yesterday evening though, so there is hope of a break.

This time next week the moon will be shining down on thick snow........hopefully😂

Back to the grey gloom dankness, an uninspiring prospect of a day, very much sums up the mood and feel of November 2020 - good riddance! Expecting a day with little light, very early dusk, get those lights up and brighten the mood!

Looks like it will be my first ever autumn without a frost. Just missed out 2 nights ago. Ironic when we had 2 frosts in mid May to destroy the prospects of an apple or plum harvest. Gloom gloom currently

We had a frost 2-3 mornings ago, but I think we must have missed the frosts in May as our apple crop locally has been one of the best in my 20 years in the area, and there have been baskets of free apples outside peoples' house until the past few days. Ditto blackberries in the hedgerows and damsons earlier in the year.

At 2000 feet it should be cold enough for snow in any showers around later in the week but interestingly Thursday is showing snow for me which, although still high for a populated  area is only half as high ASL so at least the hills should have some festive white on them by the end of the coming week.

just need to wait for operation downgrade to commence now.

Key question for me is where will the snowline be come Friday. Look forward to seeing the fells with their first white coat of the season, late this year but should make for a seasonal weekend coming up at least.

All looks a bit messy for the end of the week but the fact we are potentially talking about hail/sleet/snow chances is more than we were at this point last year.  It might be we have to suffer a bit of cold rain to start with but who knows, could be one of those rare rain-to-snow events with ice to follow?...as usual high ground will be favoured.
