    Wow! The Stray looks beautiful; I used to live just behind the Tewit Well, only saw snow like this once though back in 1990 (I think). Enjoy!!

    Actually that's Valley Gardens but the Stray looks magnificent too.

    Between 5-6" level here...I rather pessimistically only took the 6" ruler out! Quite a variation in depth: on the windward side last night minimum depth is 3", on the main path in the shelter of the bushes it's 9" and more. Level on wall top with reasonable exposure is 6". Surprised there are no larger drifts, but the snow was wet and clearly stuck: any drifting is just lee effect and no more than double the level depth.

    That is pretty impressive SF - and just goes to show how snowfall can be such a localised event. I would guess you're no more than 20 miles futher N and E than here, and a bit lower, but you've had probably three times as much snow this morning.

    Certainly a fun day for some and certainly some impressive snow depths. Am quite envious! Needless to say, nothing but heavy rain down here over night. It's now quite sunny and fairly mild. Typically, it's milder than they forecast.

    Nice pics there Yeti, did you eventually get 12CM's of snow or was it a bit less than that? :)

    It snowed heavily until 8 and then moderately till 11 so I have 12cm, although some of that has melted now even though it never rained.

    Some more pics of the snow falling - the table gives you an idea of the depth-

    Very nice.. not quite as much here, although if I could of drove to higher altitude it will be similar I guess. I did try but the road I took was not really passable.

    Being high up isn't always great for snow, but it helps most of the time - slept through most of this event and woke up at about 2pm to very little snow, the hill in the picture is Pike Low and thats 478m asl.

    For snow in this event you needed to be far enough east, in the intense part of the band and higher up the better, but if the first two factors are in place the snow could fall heavy even at 14m asl! like here, but 50m higher up there was loads more.

    Hi Yeti, It's lovely to see those pics mate - I have some fond memories of Harrogate,

    as my dad used to take me there, quite often, when I was a child.

    It looks very pretty on those shots you have taken

    Brian :)

    S.F.

    What a result :)

    Nice pics people, the snow event looked impressive here last night, whilst lamppost watchin but not very impressive on 1st light, and had mostly turned to rain by 6am. Seems the further north & east you were, the better chance you had of seeing the snow. Large parts of Scotland also missed out. Stratos feric im impressed with the depth of that snow in particular, looks great ;)
