here there has only been 2 days on snow falling all Winter, and none lying.

February is looking mild wet and windy so that could well be the final total for the Winter.

Now there have been milder Winters than this such as 15/16 and 13/14 but both those winters for me gave...

15/16 - 10 days falling, 10 days lying

13/14 - 6 days falling, 3 days lying

something seriously wrong this Winter....

Brampton

Winter so far

December 1 snow falling day
January 2 snow falling days and 2 snow lying days

Worst year 2005 with just 5 snow falling days
Worst Winter 2007 with just 3

Best 2010 with 48 !!

( Its an area where should have more detailed records, I think I am in a good area for snow, given altitude, but never going to get the big falls like Pennine areas and Central Lakes )

so on snow falling this Winter Paul you are on a par with the worst ever with 3 in 2007?

despite my figures being worse than yours it is good to see that my hunch is right and it has been a terrible terrible winter for snow so far.

I actually have snow averages for my location based on 2010-2016

Winter snow falling 13 days

Winter snow lying 12.2 days

do have any similar stats Paul?

Snow Falling Days 2000-2016 ( includes sleet or snow falling at any time, reason - this what is specified my Met Office ( sleet or snow falling Yes/or No ))

Edit - Yes on a par so far with 2007, but February still to come.

Single snowfall events 2000-2016

This shows how dire at times my snow is in terms of depth. The chart here is for a single snowfall in a day, rolling 24hrs. Not a protracted cold spell with multiple snowfall events added together. Will try and compile a list of that next

So two falls of 16cm and the rest very average indeed

Been trawling through my spreadsheets for total snow depths at 0900hr Obs

Most was 22cm level snow 10th January 2010 snow fell from 18th December 2009 reaching a max on the 10th Jan 2010

Also 21cm level snow 2nd December 2010 - snow fell from 25th Nov - 2nd December gradually building up depths


Most of these snowfall were small, but gradually built up over time. Perhaps what I should have done was to record and add together each individual snow fall. Guessing a "season" snow fall could be produced, but I simply didnt record it that way and its now impossible to look back

Another date to mention is around 7th February 1991, I wasnt recording the weather then but this was perhaps the deepest snow I can remember in Brampton, guesstimate would have been 30cm and perhaps mostly in one fall 6th/7th ?

18cm is the most i had here in recent times - 6th December 2010 i think.

ive mentioned it before but i have a photo from the early 2000's with about a foot of snow. dont know when exactly.

My annual snow falling (not inc sleet) is 20 days

annual snow lying is 15.8 days

(sadly this figure seems to be reducing every year now - was well above 20 3-4 years ago)

Looked in my books for you Paul, and I know Scotby isn't Brampton!
Snow started on the 8th Feb 1991 and continued to the 9th with a total of 13 cm cover.
