    Well, we had lots of falling snow here in Stroud but not really settled at lower levels, slushy mess.  Took a walk up at about 215 meters and there is about 5cm, still a bit drippy lol. Nice to

    Happy New Year guys. Here's some early morning pics from our walk around Burrator Reservoir and Sharpitor. It was sooo icy ❄❄❄, probably softened up a bit by now. Sorry need to click on pics for clari

    I feel your pain Rapodo as I used to live in Southampton. Was so frustrating as just inland Romsey could be having snow yet where I lived near the docks was rain ..!! Often Winchester , Basingstoke , reading would get a good dumping when all we had was rain . 
     

    Ropodo, if it makes you feel any better it's raining here after snow was forecast. So Wednesday maybe not be quite as it's showing on those graphics you posted could be rain or snow anywhere. Nowcast will be the order of the day I feel. 

    Looks like we've had rain in Shepton, I expected to see a dusting of snow this morning. Had a little yesterday though. 

    Most of the really cold spells that I remember had their origins from the N/NW  gained momentum, and  eventually switched around to the E/NE. I can remember following a snow blower up through Burrington Coombe on a motorbike in early Jan 79,following the New Year's Eve blizzard.

    We’ve had some fall in Swindon but literally only enough that I can see a slightly paler path than usual and maybe .5cm on the top of fences etc. Poor show.

    Also, I’m currently helping a local feral cat. Couple weeks before Christmas I found he was sneaking in my window at night (windows open all year in my bedroom because I have brittle asthma and the airflow helps at night) and setting off my asthma. We’ve made him a waterproofed outdoor bed (enclosed box waterproofed with bags hot glued to it to keep wet out and filled with straw) and trying to build some kind of friendship so I can get close enough to try and grab and get to a vets for scanning and a check over etc. Anyway, I took the mesh screens off my windows last night because I feel so bad about this cat who hates humans but gets so desperate for warmth he comes in my bedroom window at night. 
     

    so now there’s hardly any snow today AND I can’t breathe. Good one Jemma.

    Yeah like Groundhog Day, a rinse and repeat of first thing yesterday morning. Woke up to the sound of rain!

    Some in the MOD thread are complaining that it’s just not cold enough for their liking to get excited. I’m starting to understand why.

    Oh no ! You poor thing , both you abd the cat. 
    Really sympathise with you as my mum has severe asthma . Can only walk one end of the house to the other and literally struggles to breath .

    nice one you though for helping the cat at your own sacrifice . 👍

    Living on the Coast drives me bonkers when you see things like this! North Dorset looks good as normal though. Wednesdays outlook.

    I would caveat this as being a best case scenario amongst the high Res models this morning.  Plenty take the low and associated PPN further south (ie Somerset, Dorset southwards) and/or give more rain less snow.

    Best to expect the worse but hope for the best.  As it stands, if anywhere is going to see some settling snowfall, I'd plump for Mendips and Salisbury Plain, but as per normal, radar watching will be required.

    It is all very odd I must say. Its rain here in Poole the temps shot up as the band approached so alot of mixing out going on. The Sea temps are warm this year too I believe.

    Lighter snow now as the heaviest ppn moves away, but it has left a nice dusting on the roofs/cars/fences.

    you and me both. If it was a holy grail of cold spells, surely we wouldn’t be dreading the marginal and north of m4 phrases again!!

    Shaftesbury didn't get the heavier precip, which rattled over Cranborne Chase and through here and Ringwood.  That's when we got the snow. Started as rain.

    I think there is warm air boundary some where aloft, I’m hoping now that this rain has cleared the winds apparently are due to switch to the north which may drag in colder air aloft! 
    hoping 😂😂is the the word
