    I had to get out before the sun melted it all. 

    Some brilliant walking conditions this morning apart from the sheer depth of snow, almost a foot fell here last night and not a Met O warning in site. made for some good photographs though, altho

    Heaviest single fall of snow for several years here and the heaviest in April since 1981.

    Thu - Fri retreats and fizzes out.

    What do you think about Sat  - Sun?

    The models show potential, but too far off for any certainty. Judging by the extended outlook, the cold air seems to be holding firm. The metoffice fax charts show the fronts really struggling to make inroads on Friday and Saturday, so hard to see the block being blasted away on Sunday, but time will tell. Hopefully a stall occurs over our region and then it all retreats, but that is probably wishful thinking!

    Thanks, it's tough going that's for sure. We'll be moving inland eventually, can't cope with how poor it's become especially the last 10 years. As a kid I remember my dad's pond freezing thick with ice nearly every year but not anymore.

    Exactly this. In the last 10 years it's become really poor, 2013 and 2018 are the only real snowfalls producing a cover; everything else is a light dusting (if that). Never used to be the case, we would always get a proper cover of snow, even if it was only a few cm.

    Looks to be more NE'ly, wind direction tonight could help our Cumbrian friends?

     

    Someone who's lived here longer than me can tell me if it's any use a bit further south (imby 🤣)?

    Front pushing in W early Saturday morning - possible 3hrs ppn could do with a stall feature.

    Weekend actually looks amazing. It’s actually only marginal for the Crosby grid square but for my grid square it’s not until Monday morning.

    Latest UKV agrees with a battle ground snow event at weekend however we know what will happen either it won't happen or it will correct south giving the Midlands another pasting.

    Glorious morning here, got lucky with that south manchester streamer last night so a thin covering remains. Another cold crisp few days in the offing. A blessing in the circumstances we are faced with, at least we can get out and enjoy it!

    Regardless of what anyone says, the sun will melt your snow at this time of year no matter what.

    Despite it being below freezing, the snow that fell is now melting rapidly in the strengthening February sunshine. Not much cloud about today to stop it either. Can't even hang onto a dusting in one of the coldest easterlies for years.

    Well its sunny here and its snowing on and off as well so not much melting this time. All other snowy days it did melt in no time.

    IMBY it doesnt really matter which direction its from, im doomed. I always thought easterlies were slightly better than NE'lys because i dont think any showers reached here in 2010 from the NE where as in the 2009 E'ly we managed about an inch.

    Yes a better direction for Cumbria than the current airflow. Might wake up to cm cover at least in the coming morning.

    Current temp -0.2 degrees, despite the cold uppers the sun is having an effect now, and again no ice day. A max of about 1.5 to 2 degrees expected by 3pm I think.

    Its simply not true, but hey hoo

    If the snow is an inch or so deep then the snow will remain relatively intact unless of course its on a surface that can still aboard the heat such as a car / bin tree etc.

    I know that becasue where the snow is deep enougth at home the snow hasn't melted as soon as the surface of the floor is exposed then the snow will melt around that location.

    Now the sun may cause some snow to evaporate when the air temp is below zero.

    The dusting you have is melting becasue the surface can still absurd the heat of the sun.

    It happened during the Beast a few years back when the air temp was -3
