Think about me then ive been hunting a repeat of feb 1991 for 21 years, moving 4 years ago then everwhere i had been gets a pasting, that said the amount of snow i have seen the 2 winters is still more than i ever would have dreamed of seeing up untill 3 years ago and a heck of a lot more than a lot of people.

Maximum depth at any point here over the past 3 years has been 5cm; even the more coastal location of Runcorn has seen more snow.....it's not been due to a lack of cold, just this crap wnw airflow. Not seen a potent proper NW'ly in years.

I really do. Makes it worse that a car just went past with snow on it, so it got close. This weather synoptic just likes to make me tear my hair out.

If I still had my car I'd be out chasing. As it is, I have no car and an inability to keep getting out of bed to check the lampost because my non-weather loving other half is asleep and there would be hell to pay if I woke her up over a couple of flakes of snow.

I'm pretty much the same. Had I my car I'd be driving up to Leeds Bradford Airport and Otley, but I wrote it off last month. :( Won't be long until I get another one though!

BT - a temperature sensor on a source of heat such as a chimney? Plus it will be in the sunlight all day but you state only between 8-2pm.

Yeah, it's all in one. It was either have a great wind reading or an accurate temperature reading.

Already got a station at Met Office standards (ish) so thought I'd go for the wind! :D

Wunderground don't check anything no :p

Not good, i have at leas seen 6 or 7 inch events in the last 2 years but if i would have been here 2009/2010 as opposed to Manchester CC i would have seen some serious drifts and im talking about if i walked 2 or 3 miles from here 5 or 6 foot, and if i had not of rushed my decision to move 18 months ago, i may have been in buxton or edale which had 2 foot last year, im really after the big one i am, anyway still nothing here since about 2 hours ago.

Wind has picked up a lot here and the temp has shot up to 3.7c, it's gonna get stronger as well so the temp will remain to high on west coasts.

Good infact.

Blizzard conditions earlier, heavy persistent snow with winds gusting 45mph.

All surfaces covered in snow, don't think its deep as its fairly wet.

Mostly on and off snow for most of the evening.

We're still discussing the team colours - purple like last year, or a new one for Winter 2011/12....

People say it's only weather but I'm passionate about it, seriously snow starved now and things like this just make it worse. That shower that missed to the north has now pepped up 10 miles to the east out towards Stoke/Congleton. Couldn't make it up.

Not really covered here despite a good spell of heavy persistent snow earlier. You're only about 5km away from me too.

Could be our last snow, unless, by some miracle, that snow in Scotland manages to make it here

I think if you look outside you will see there has already been a heavy shower passed through about 10 minutes ago.Cars all have remnants of snow on windscreens etc.
