Wintry showers on and off here all evening, though having driven lower down altituse is a factor. Looking across the valley I'm just above the level at which the precipitation has a fair amount of snow in it. Not out and out snow, but very sleety. Temp around 2C.

Would have gone to bed - but I was watching the weather radar precipitation moving into the Northamptonshire area - and it's just arrived 3am. Been monitoring the wind direction and temperture too. Now blowing NNW here with a temp of 1.8 on my outside thermometer, and now snowing (approx 90m ASL - new house not yet on OS maps). Will try to submit some pics to show if it gets heavy enough.

Worth staying awake for, because i'm not sure that the snow showers tomorrow will make it this far inland (it's approx 45-50 miles due NE to the Wash).

can i just mention that the streaming webcam from yesterday was not consett but stanley which is about 10miles away from consett.

The snow had all gone from stanley by 5am completely which was a shame as an inch or so had accumulated.

Some sleety showers during the night just gone. And surprisingly the wind is almost calm ! :shock: Barely blowing.

Very dark clouds here in Barnsley. Few flurries of snow. Getting darker, and not because of the setting sun

Hey WB, I must be getting it a lot worse than you, the mountains sem to be drawing all the ppn South towards me. I have photos of heavy sleet and a very slight covering of snow on Pen Pych. I imagine Hirwaun mountain is covered?

Sleet turning increasingly to rain here now.

El Siabod? never heard of it :D I've got Pen Pych and Hirwaun mountain just about in my view, Pen pych is about 400m, and Hirwaun mountain about 600m or so I think :(

Now clearing and light rain/sleet can be seen to my West.

Oh well. El Siabod is about 800m I think. It's not all that far from Snowdonia.

I climbed it at New Year 1977. Just before a real arctic blast brought blizzards to just about everywhere! :D

Pen-y-fan is over 850m and thats just North of Hirwaun mountain though, not far from me atall!

Heavy showers to my West and temp has dropped to 3.5c. Expect some snow in the next shower.

Tremendously dark clouds here now in Newark along with a temp of 1.4C.

1 hour ago there were no clouds in site, but now there is nothing else but them. The bbc are saying that the North and East of the east midlands are going to get this tonight: Frosty in the west. Snow showers becoming locally persistent and heavy across north and east.

I just really hope that the bbc are right about this one, can't wait! :wink:
