RMK:   Hotter than it was at this time yesterday.
There were heavy showers not far away to E and NE
yesterday evening and this morning there was thunder
rumbling to the east 0645-0700z. So far, though, we
haven’t had a drop of rain here. It’s already much
too hot for comfort so here’s hoping that the heat
will trigger off some shower activity.

RMK:   With a max of 30.3° it’s the hottest day of the
year so far. That’s a very long way out of my comfort
zone and the sooner we get the Atlantic air back in
the better, as far as I am concerned. There’s some
classic Cb anvils visible far to the NE but,
unfortunately, they’re receding.

RMK:   After the relatively cool start it evolved into
another fiery hot day. Not at all humid, though, just
hot. The RH this afternoon has been in the range 30-40%.
It’s been somewhat reminiscent of parts of the Middle East
and inland Australia. The sunshine has been limited by
the extensive high cloud which has been thick enough at
times for the sunshine recorder to stop clocking up.
It’s not hazy sun as there’s no haze at all. It’s just
that the sun is a lot weaker than it would be if the
sky was cloudless. Max temp 26.2° so far but it’s still
creeping up.

breeze it has felt decidedly raw. It’s one of the nastiest
faces of spring. There’s even some snowdrops still in bloom,
adding to the February feel and look. I still don’t understand
why fog as thick as this doesn’t trigger a severe weather
warning. Fog is fog, no matter what the mechanism is for
its formation. Attempting to drive at 60 m.p.h. on the main

RMK:   The perfect activity today would have been to curl up
in front of a log fire with a good book. I spent the day in
front of a computer screen, which was probably a good
second-best! The rain ceased by 1000z but was immediately
replaced by slight drizzle. At the same time, the cloud base
lowered to ground level. We’ve been in fog ever since with
the vis mostly in the range 200-400m. There’s been slight
drizzle for much of the time and a decidedly raw breeze
which was gusting 25-30 knots 0800-1100z. Max temp only 6.4°.

RMK:   The rain is slowly easing but it remains gloomy, bleak
and raw. The statistics show just how dull and wet it has
been in recent weeks. With 30% of April gone we have already
had 107% of the average rainfall for the whole month but
only 16% of the average sunshine for the whole month. 43% of
spring has now elapsed. In that period the rainfall total
is 93% of the average for the whole of spring while the
sunshine total is only 18% of the average for the whole of
spring. Dull and wet sums up the first half of spring very
well. It has also been cold.

for a couple of hours in mid-afternoon but the rain is back.
There’s been fog on and off since mid-morning. There’s still
2-3cm of lying snow with a 90% cover. The roads around the

and the time the AWS stopped clocking up rainfall I reckon
the sleet probably turned to snow around 0300z. There’s
5cm of lying snow on all surfaces, including the road. There’s
no drifting. The temp is slowly creeping down.

RMK:   A low overcast all day. Long spells of slight rain
since 0900z. It’s turning out to be a very dull month. Assuming
there’s no sunshine between now and sunset this will be the
6th sunless day so far. The first 10 days of the month have
produced a total of only 3.6 hours of sunshine. The snow problems
continue. Today it was a Ford Galaxy taxi that got stuck. Same
road, different snow drift. The taxi didn’t even get past the
first drift. The underside bottomed out on the drift and he was
left with limited weight on the wheels. We tried to help him
get moving but there was no chance. The driver was last seen
heading off on foot to try to get hold of someone with a
tractor. It’s all so unnecessary as most roads are completely
clear. As I said yesterday, the one causing the problems is
notorious. It gets ploughed from the village end only as far as
the last house. From the other end it is usually left to thaw
naturally and that’s the bit where the deepest drifts are
usually found. Max temp today was 10.7°. That’s not quite the
warmest of the year so far. That accolade goes to 10.8° on
28th January.

RMK:   Fog slowly thinned after 0900z and eventually lifted
into low cloud around 1100z. The low cloud persisted into
the early afternoon and by the time it dispersed the middle
cloud was invading the sky. As a result, there was no
sunshine but it did remain dry. Almost all of the snow that
fell yesterday morning has now melted and we are left with
only the drifts from last week’s event. It’ll be a while
before the last of them is gone. Some lanes that don’t
lead to properties are still blocked by drifts. This
afternoon we came across an abandoned water authority Land
Rover that was well and truly stuck in a deep drift. Just
beyond it the was a ‘Chelsea Tractor’ type of Land Rover
that had been trying to negotiate the same lane. When the
driver realised that she couldn’t get through she had tried
to do a 3-point turn in a gateway and had also got stuck in
another deep drift. It’ll need a tractor to extricate both
vehicles. I don’t have much sympathy for the drivers as
there is no need to use that particular lane. There are two
alternatives, both of which have been ploughed and cleared.
Where the two vehicles are stuck is a notorious spot for
deep drifts. Almost always it is the last stretch of road
to be opened around the village after a heavy snowfall.
Max temp 6.4°.

RMK:   A low overcast with mist and intermittent fog persisted
till early afternoon. There was then a change to more
cumuliform cloud for a while but it has all flattened out
again. There’s been a steady thaw throughout the day. Despite
that, while out walking this afternoon we came across 2 roads
only a few hundred yards outside the village that are still
blocked by snowdrifts 1-2m high. A transit van had tried to get
through one of them but had become completely stuck. The
driver needed either a tractor or several more days of thaw
to get the van moving again. All this on a ‘no lying snow’ day.
I should think the driver of the van might have a different
view on that 🙂 Max temp 6.2°.

RMK:   A claggy morning with a very slow thaw in progress.
There’s still lots of deep snow on the ground but the cover is
now less than 50%. It’s an anomaly in the system whereby today
won’t count as a ‘snow lying’ day, even though there are
still roads blocked by deep drifts, but a day with a uniform
slight dusting would count. The rules appear to assume that
snowfall always produces an even cover and do not address the
situation in which dry powdery snow falls with a strong wind
blowing.

Dry for the remainder of the morning then occasional slight
drizzle in afternoon. Slight rain in the past half hour.
A slow thaw set in around midday and the lying snow is
turning wet and it’s a bit slushy in places now. There’s
still about 10cm of lying snow with drifts to 2m. We had
a major snow-clearing exercise this afternoon to get our cars
out. I don’t know how much snow we shifted but it felt like
tons. The main problem is finding somewhere to put it all
that doesn’t impede the neighbours. We all have the same
problem! Max temp +2.1° so far but it’s still creeping up.

rain. This was abruptly replaced by moderate snow at 0820z

something like 12cm with drifts to 2m and more. It looks
like there was some freezing rain or drizzle before the snow
as many surfaces are coated in ice. The temperature is
creeping up so we might not manage a 4th consecutive 09-09z
ice day.

RMK:   A grey, gloomy day with freezing fog for much of the
time. Very slight freezing drizzle for the past couple of
hours. Something like 10cm of lying snow with drifts to
2m in the village outskirts and beyond. Max temp -1.2°
and it has started to drop again.

0900z   04008kt 0800 FZFG 8St002 -02.9/-03.4 996
RMK:   That’s 3 consecutive 09-09z ‘ice’ days. That’s pretty
remarkable for the time of year. There’s been a little
fresh snow overnight but nothing significant. There’s
probably the equivalent of 10cm of lying snow. Once the
thaw does come we’ll almost certainly end up with less
than 50% cover despite still having huge amounts of snow
on the ground. One result of the very strong winds of the
past 2 days is that all of our east-facing windows have a
thick coating of salt on them. I suppose it could be road
salt but I think it’s much more likely to be from sea
spray. The Lincolnshire coast is 80-90 miles east of here.
Given the strength of the wind the travel time from the coast
to here would have been 2 hours at most so it certainly does
seem plausible.

RMK:   Dry and cloudy all day with a persistent bitter wind.
Had a walk around the lanes this afternoon. My guess is that
the total amount of snow equates to something like 10-15cm
of level snow but it’s very difficult to be sure. Exposed
areas have been blown completely bare while more sheltered
areas have deep snow. There’s numerous drifts 1-1.5m and
some to 2m and higher. All of the lanes we investigated are
impassable to all traffic except tractors. The main road
through the village is slushy but not a problem. There’s
a long list of roads closed in North Derbyshire, some main
roads and some important minor roads. Max temp -1.8°, so
warming up a little!

-1.0° on 11th Mar 2013.

RMK:   Snow died out late yesterday evening. Overnight has
probably been dry. A very windy night with a max gust
of 48 knots at 0020z. A lot of the lying snow has blown
away and what remains has been compacted by the wind, hard
enough to walk on without sinking in. There’s probably the
equivalent of about 10cm of lying snow with drifts to
about 75cm around the house. It’s perishing in the wind.

Tideswell, Derbyshire – Thursday 1st March 2018

1700z   07022g41kt 0400 -SN -BLSN VV/// -04.1/-04.6 1003
RMK:   Continuous snow all day. Moderate till about 1100z then
slight since then. It’s been intensifying during the past hour
and it’s getting close to moderate again. Much drifting in the
wind that has been frequently gusting to 35-40 knots. Max gust
44 knots. Best guess is that there’s around 25cm of lying
snow but it varies from absolutely bare ground to waist-deep.
There’s drifts to about 1m around the house and garden.
Many roads are closed/impassable and the police have advised
everyone to keep off the roads in North Derbyshire. This is
certainly high impact weather and it could be life-threatening
to anyone stranded in a car. Max temp -3.9°.

RMK:   This is now an event of some significance. Continuous
moderate snow since before dawn with considerable drifting.
I’ll make a guess at 20cm of lying snow. Around the house
drifts are now approaching 1 metre. I haven’t investigated
any further afield! There’s no sensible way of measuring the
rainfall so the rainfall figure below is just an estimate.
I doubt if we’ll see a snow plough while this lot continues.
It would be a bit of a futile exercise.

RMK:   Wow! Welcome to spring. These are potentially
life-threatening conditions were you to have the misfortune
of getting caught out in them. It’s absolutely perishing
out there. There’s no level snow but I would guess that the
amount of snow corresponds to something like 15cm of level
depth. There’s drifts up to 50cm around the house. Outside the
village drifts are now undoubtedly up to 2 metres or more now.

there’s been occasional heavy snow showers and blowing snow
giving temporary blizzard conditions with vis below 50m.
There’s something like 13 cm of lying snow though there is
no ‘level depth’. There’s drifts to 50cm around the house and
garden and to 1.5m or more outside the village. Max temp -4.2°.
If that turns out to be the 24-hour max to 0900z tomorrow it’ll
be the lowest daily max since -5.7° on 20th Dec 2010.

abruptly became mod/hvy at 1100z and is now drifting
significantly as the wind freshens. 10 cm of lying snow with
drifts to 30 cm around the house. I haven’t ventured further
but I expect that there are drifts to 1 metre and more in
exposed areas outside the village. I suspect that traffic
in the area has either mostly ground to a standstill or is
non-existent.

main roads in the area have been closed, including the
A57 Snake Pass, A537 Cat & Fiddle, A53 Leek Road and A6024
Holme Moss. Untreated roads have hard-packed snow or pristine
powder. Last night’s min temp of -8.1° was the lowest min

the drifting to be a problem but if there’s more snow
tonight and tomorrow with stronger winds then it might
become a problem. Max temp +0.2° so we didn’t quite manage

RMK:   One of the most unpleasant days of the winter. Slight to
moderate snow continued till midday then became slight sleet.
Around 1430z it turned to drizzle and that has continued
for the rest of the afternoon. A bitter wind all day, frequently
gusting over 30 knots. 3 cm of lying snow with a slow thaw
continuing. Walking around the village is still quite
hazardous due to stretches of thick ice. This formed as a
result of hard-packed snow partly thawing then re-freezing
several times. This process has left stretches of thick hard
ice. It’s very lumpy and it’s like walking on oily cobbles,
only much slippier than that. Max temp 2.0° so far but it’s
still creeping up.

snow with drifts to around 25 cm. Just outside the village
there’s lots of drifts up to 1 m and a few deeper than that.

of slush and hard-packed snow. It’s all starting to freeze.

quickly melted. Slight to moderate rain continued into
the early afternoon and then there was a change to slight
drizzle with a very low overcast which has persisted until
now. The cloud base has been down to 100-200 ft at times
but never quite low enough for us to get into fog.
Max temp 6.5° so far but it is still trying to creep up
a little. Back to winter tomorrow by the looks of it.

RMK:   Slight snow started around 0700z. By 0800z there was a
slight dusting on all surfaces. It then turned to moderate
sleet. Untreated hard surfaces now look wet but the sleet
is freezing on impact and hard surfaces are now extremely
dangerous, being covered in ice with a film of liquid water
on top but just looking wet. No doubt it’ll be a short-lived
hazard but it’s probably the most ‘severe’ conditions we have
had this winter.

RMK:   A thoroughly miserable afternoon. Slight to moderate
rain all afternoon with a max temp of only +0.2°. Very pleased
that I had a walk this morning while it was still snowing.
Despite the rain there’s been very little thaw and there’s
still 6 cm of lying snow. It’s turned quite slushy now.

The snow stopped abruptly and was replaced by half an hour
of ice pellets. For the past half hour there’s been slight
rain. There’s 7 cm lying snow. It did drift a bit but there
wasn’t enough wind for that to be a problem. The roads are
a bit of a mess and there isn’t much traffic about. Even the
gritted main roads have a covering of snow.

fresh accumulations. The sky cleared for a short time in late
afternoon but we now have a cover of Sc. There’s 3 cm of lying
snow which now has a frozen crust on it. Untreated roads turned
slushy this afternoon but the slush is now freezing into
hard ice. Max temp +1.4°. It fell below zero at 1605z and
was down to -0.9° by 1645z. Since then it has risen a bit as
the Sc sheet came across.

Despite what the radar suggests, there’s no precipitation
here at the moment but it must surely start soon. There’s
2 cm of lying snow. Our road has shiny hard-packed snow on it
but I should think the main roads in the immediate vicinity
are fine. The only main road in the area that’s still closed
is the A6024 over Holme Moss but Derbyshire CC say that there
are icy stretches even on gritted roads.

RMK:   In sharp contrast to recent days it has been a mostly
dry day today with sunny intervals. The Liverpool Bay shower
stream has been running from due west for most of the day.
With this direction all of the shower activity passes north
of here. Late this afternoon the gradient appears to have
veered slightly. As a result the shower stream is coming
very slightly further south and, since 1600z, we have been
catching the southern edge of the stream. A change of
gradient direction of as little as 10° can make a big
difference. Anything north of due west round to NW, say 280°
to about 310° puts us in the firing line. There’s still
2 cm of lying snow which is already freezing. The A537 Cat &
Fiddle and the A57 Snake Pass re-opened this afternoon. The
only main road in the area that’s still closed is the
A6024 over Holme Moss. Around Tideswell, main roads and bus
routes (all gritted) are clear but many of the lanes have
quite long stretches of hard-packed snow on them. With a
film of melt-water on top of this during the afternoon
they have been very slippery. Max temp 2.4°.

RMK:   A gorgeous day with patchy small Cu and sunny spells.
With 5.9 hours of sun it was the sunniest day since 6.3 hours
on 24th Nov. Lots of walkers out. Mind you, it was a day to
be well clad. With a max of 2.9° and the wind gusting to
25-30 knots in the afternoon it was a bit ‘thin’ as they say
in these parts. Despite not having an air frost last night
ice and hoar frost persisted in the shade all day. Looks like
a much colder night in prospect with the temperature already
down to last night’s minimum.
