Snowy morning in Plumpton with 2cms lying and moderate snow falling temperature -0.1c.

Doubt it will last long with milder air moving in but at least I should get a day with lying snow at 9am.

Maximum yesterday 2.3c so warmer than Wednesday.

Up early in anticipation, disappointed once again.

Everything was white with frost at 7am, had a very brief spell of rain with occ sleet around 8am which froze. Since then nothing, gradual thaw of the frost, but grass is still whitish. I really get fed up with this at times. As other members have said, radar indicates that it should be doing something but nothing. Solway triangle in full effect. May be a good while before there is another opportunity for snow

Temp now 2.3c dewpoint 0.3c

Max 2.7c/Min -0.2c
Grass Min -5.0c
Sunshine 2.8hrs
Rainfall trace

(barely managed an air frost last night)
