    Despite what the radar is showing it is all rain here in Belper. Not sure what it's like on the hillier parts though.

    Roofs and grass becoming white now. But it’s not the kind of settling that’s going to last.

    Back more to sleet:rain also here, must be in a milder pocket. Wind has got up a bit more also. Still fairly light though, can’t see this are getting much (if anything) from this. Bit too mild still, precipitation too light, the wrong time of day & saturated ground.

    Lashing down with rain now. You get some bursts of snow here and there but overall its pretty grim.

    Just rain now really in Hinckley, with the odd sleety moment, doesn't look great for turning. Hope those guys that didn't get much snow on Sunday get to see it if we don't today. Fingers crossed for you guys

    This constant rain is tiresome. I've seen milk turn quicker than this! 😂

    I've given up on this one, today. Is supposed to be turning more to snow in around 30 mins but, right now, it's not even close. 2.5c with a dew of 2c. One for the bin at lower levels, i'm afraid.

    Up at 04:00,Ground just wet. Temperature 4.1C.  DP 0.5C ,Heavy drizzle.

    Went back to bed, after looking at my app. It said turning at 09:00..

    Got up at 08;15. No snow flakes, but conservatory roof showing splodges with a temp of 2.1C, DP -0.3C

    Now at 8:30 just seen first flakes in a heavier burst with a strong gust.  Temp now at 1.8C with a DP of -0.6C.

    5 minutes later discrete flakes showing at 1.7C.    Looks to be setting in. Still fast moving wet flakes though.

    I love to watch a rain to snow event.😲😲😄 😛   --- Could snow for 6 hours. 

    It will need intensity to settle though. 

    MIA

    Looking at the latest radar from an hour ago the blues are starting to fill in from rain to sleet like here and still waiting >>>>>> to ❄️❄️❄️❄️

    sleeting here and 1.6c
