A few miles north in Milton Keynes - none at all!

None in North West England so far, but it's cold, grey and wet so even if it does snow, it's unlikely to stick. Soon be Spring! flowers

North Leicestershire is just grey, cold and wet, I wouldn't mind some snow and an excuse to stay in and keep warm. Mind you, if it snows enough to keep you in, then the power would go off and it would be cold inside as well.

There was a lot this morning here in Colchester but it's gone now, just cold and damp.

A few flurries mid morning in London but not enough to lie. Now it is just bitterly cold.

Woke up this morning to a slight covering in Staffordshire.
Flurries of snow on and off all morning.
Temperature must have gone up this afternoon as snow all gone, just very cold & damp now.

It's bitterly cold in St.Andrews , we had snow yesterday but it was warmer . I'm home from work and I'm glad that I don't have to go out again . Looking forward to Taboo tonight .

We had that stuff that can't decide whether it's rain, sleet or snow this morning in Kent. It's stopped now. Some of the county had a light dusting over night.

Absolutely freezing on South Downs and snow on and off all day. Small amount on ground. Forecast much warmer next weeksmile

Norah Sat 11-Feb-17 17:50:36

Mostly just cold, small flurries.

KatyK Sat 11-Feb-17 17:54:15

A few flurries in the West Mids and very cold.

Seems to be only on the higher ground here; we had none, but half a mile up the road where it is open country, it was white over. Then, as we dropped down towards the edge of the city, nothing. We can't discount it yet. Last year half way through March when the trout fishing season was about to start, we had falls of snow that kept us all off the banks; then of course, it all melts and the rivers are too high to fish. If it don't get you one way, it'll get you another!

We have to head to Sheffield for a family funeral, sadly. Is there any GN person in that area who can tell me if there is snow there? Weather reports are so contradictory 😒
