Snow lying during the Daytime


Summer of 95

    This was inspired by a post I made in Winter Discussion recently regarding how readily snow settled, and for how long.

    The number of days with snow lying (>50% cover) here at 12 noon GMT, in brackets is the 9am figure:

    2005/6: 4 (6)

    2004/5: 1 (5)

    2003/4: 3 (5)

    2002/3: 1 (1)

    2001/2: 5 (7)

    2000/1: 4 (7)

    1999/0: 0 (0)

    1998/9: 1 (1)

    1997/8: 0 (2)

    1996/7: 9 (12)

    1995/6: 17 (21)

    1994/5: 4 (6)

    1993/4: 5 (7)

    2004/5 is the one that stands out here for a big discrepancy, due to the snow that fell in Feb/early Mar never managing to stay on the ground for more than a few hours. Also notable that 2001/2 is the best winter in the last decade according to this measure.

    As is usual for these interesting threads posted by Summer of 95, I'll add the corresponding stats for Cleadon:

    1993/4: 15 (18)

    1994/5: 4 (6)

    1995/6: 15 (18)

    1996/7: 6 (11)

    1997/8: 0 (4)

    1998/9: 6 (9)

    1999/0: 0 (1)

    2000/1: 9 (11)

    2001/2: 6 {8}

    2002/3: 5 (6)

    2003/4: 7 (11)

    2004/5: 1 (3)

    2005/6: 7 (10)

    It just goes to show that even here in the North East, you can go an entire winter without having any lying snow that persists through the morning- and interestingly, it happened in the same two winters as in Shrewsbury. Interesting that the Shrewsbury area was generally less snowy than Cleadon, but with a notable exception in 1995/96- the same was also true for Lancaster.

    You are located in one of the warmest parts of the NE and not really representative of the region as a whole.

    Very true; I reckon that other parts of this region probably had a lasting snow cover on 19-21 January and 1 March 1998 (in the 1997/98 example) and also in December 1999 during the 1999/00 example.

    Makes for interesting comparisons TWS, thanks for your stats.

    Shrewsbury also seems to have done slightly better in 1996-7 and 2004-5 (the latter no doubt due to the NW Midlands snow at Christmas), and the same in 1994-5; Cleadon however seems to have been very lucky in 1998/9.
