Driving up towards Birmingham today, at around 7 am just north of Oxford on the M40, there was an intensive slushy-snow storm reducing visibility a lot, for about 5-10 minutes, before clearing away.  There was a brief settling of white stuff on the hard shoulder.  Then as the sun came up, it was all blue sky & sunshine.

Top news for the antipo-boablet!

A few flakes in Chester, most are not making it to the ground.

A few flakes in the rain on my way home tonight but no snow. I'm guessing the fells will have had a dusting.

On Sunday we visited friends who live at just over 1,000 metres (3,300 feet) above sea level. To get to their place it felt like we were driving up a toboggan run. The natural snowline is about half way up the car windows; the extra height is the snow that has been cleared from the road.

My brother reports snow in Forfar.
Meanwhile I've spent the last 90 mins sitting on a plane at a snowy CDG waiting for it to be deiced, and I'm bloody starving. Breakfast was a long time ago...

We saw a flurry of snow at about 11 ish.  It was wet slushy stuff that disappeared as it hit the ground.  According to the weather we won't see any more today (now i've said that, I'll wake up tomorrow morning to a a foot of the stuff!!)

Snowing lightly in the Chilterns atop Tring Hill. Not settling atm. Scheduled to last a couple of hours and become heavier. We shall see.

The moderately heavy rain just got whiter and less noisy here.
