Snow showers becoming heavier as the morning went little of the sunshine so the snow has a lot of pollution in it which is why it's melting even at -1.8C. Finally got a full covering but only a few millimeters which probably go very quickly in a few minutes as the sun comes out and temperatures lift

Max temp -0.6C, now -2.2C low -2.2C, Barometer 1016mb steady, Wind F4 E, Rainfall 0.4mm melted snow.

A very cold and windy day with sunny intervals and frequent showers of snow and soft hail, the showers becoming heavy at times later this afternoon with drifting. Only a slow accumulation of the snow before mid afternoon due to slight thawing in the sunny intervals and thawing from beneath with the ground unfrozen.

A mix today of sunny spells and snow showers, the snow persistent early this evening and giving a little dusting.

Feeling bitterly cold in the wind, but there is a warmth in the sun when out.

Just back in, a quite snowy Doncaster, starting to freeze on the roads as well. Two fairly marked blizzards late afternoon and again into the evening, blowing snow and visibility less than 200 m at times. Still only 1 cm or so. Perhaps the most wintry weather in terms of snow falling and being whipped up by a strong wind that I have seen in a very long time, other than when on my annual skiing holidays. 

Current temperature -1.1 C having been down to -2.2 C at some time since I went out about 5 pm.

maximum in the sunny spells this afternoon was 1.8 C
