Just took at the forecast for next 24 Hrs. , and its possible Snow and low temperatures north of Oxford as a dividing line.

Hi all. Frosty and calm in East Sussex. All there is on BBC News for last half hour is a sports review of last year. Bah humbug!

Good morning all. Dull and grey and 2.8deg C in Cheshire.
No I have not been out to see.
I have an inexpensive weather station that reports in from the sensor in the back garden. A weather geek me.

It's a frosty foggy morning, but I think I can see a lightness in the sky - so am delaying my morning walk until later. It may turn out sunny :-)

No sign of sunshine in NW London but at present it is dry, frosty and very cold. I may make a wish to keep the snow at bay.

Good morning all, thick frost here, and I over-slept AGAIN. It is becoming a habit. Lovely Christmas Day, yesterday, and the family here this afternoon. Enjoy your days.

Kiora Fri 26-Dec-14 08:58:05

Oh printmiss how I wish I could oversleep. Any tips on how to achieve this state greatly appreciated. Enjoy Boxing Day with your family

Overcast with a rather threatening tinge here in the north west. It's also much colder than yesterday. I love boxing day, the traditional long walk, the continued indulgence in fabulous food, even better as it's now all cooked and just waiting to be eaten. Have a good day everyone

Overcast and chilly but very still here in Mid Essex. I will be talking to daughter in Cumbria later and see what the weather is like there.
Off to son's later on for lunch etc. so a nice easy day for me.
Actually I sometimes miss the big Christmas cook up when all the children were at home and grandparents came - not the shopping for it though. I don't miss that.
Have a lovely day everyone.

Woke up freezing cold, and now the rain has started and forecast to rain all day. After a busy social Christmas Day, I'm having the whole day to myself today. Shall tidy up then sit down with treats and goodies and catch up with yesterday's recorded programmes.

A belated Good Morning all.

I have been up since 7am but this is my first chance to post. We had a very quiet day yesterday apart from the hour when DD DGSx2 came for present exchange. Our fun day is today DD and partner for lunch then the boys dad is bringing them here later this afternoon.

Good morning from the East Midlands after a hard frost overnight

Happy Boxing Day all. We think it's raining here (chez DS2 & GF in Plymouth). To be honest I haven't looked out yet but dog has been out and said it is raining. We had a lovely day and a magnificent meal, which was cooked by the youngsters. We met the GF's family and all got on well. We also saw DS1 & family in USA on Skype so everyone happy.

Good morning all, happy Boxing Day. I hope you all had a stress free day yesterday. I started posting but DH reminded me that we had to fit in a visit to his brother and nephew. We found them sitting in the sun enjoying a drink so we joined them for a small one. tchwink

Another weather geek here Nellie It went down to 4.4degC last night but it's rising steadily now and has become very pleasant in the sun.

Boxing Day is my favourite too, I hope you all have a good day. sunshine

Overcast and damp in Cheshire, as always, but getting colder.

Lona Fri 26-Dec-14 11:28:15

A late good morning to you all, nice to see you ps hope you're ok?
I hope the snow forecast is 'scaremongering' hmm

Still full from all the food yesterday, but we had a lovely day.

Belated good morning just.

Been up since 8am had a lovely lazy morning and started one of the books I got from Santa. Bliss

Oh, forgot to mention weather. Thick fog has lifted, now grey and pouring rain. Nose in a book day definitely.

Overcast and looks like snow in Aylesbury after a very frosty start.

DH and DD1 have just gone into town to look for wood and lock to stop dogs escaping. DSiL is still in dressing gown - says he's coming down with manflu - and girls now dressed and watching Lego film. Hopefully the rest of us will go for a walk after lunch - just a short one so we can say we have!

Have a restful day All.
