the remnants of many snowdrifts but all the other snow

month. The sunshine total for the month to date is 19.5 hours.

Tideswell, Derbyshire – Sunday 21st January 2018

1700z 16004kt 1200 -RA BR 8St003 +00.2/-00.1 1004
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.

1300z 15013g25kt 1500 -RA BR 8St004 +00.1/-00.2 1009
RMK: Slight snow till 1000z then moderate snow 1000-1200z.
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.

0900z 16004kt 1500 -SN BR 8St004 -00.1/-00.4 1013

RMK: Continuous slight snow approx 1030-1500z giving slight
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.

0900z CALM 20km 1St003 7St007 +00.2/-00.2 1000
RMK: Slight snow showers continued into the early hours.
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.

1700z 25009kt 20km RE-SHSN 4Cu012 +01.5/+00.0 1005
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°.

0900z 25011kt 20km 3Cu010 +00.5/-00.5 1005

By the time it stopped, around 2300z, there was 2 cm of snow
lying on all surfaces. Most of that has gone now but there
are still a few patches remaining. The temperature was on
a real roller-coaster ride. It rose from +0.5° at 2300z to
6.5° at 0215z. It then fell from 6.0° at 0330z to +1.8°
at 0500z. It was windy in the warm sector, peaking at Force 6

a westerly. The wind had died away by 0530z.

1900Z 07011kt 50km SKC +00.2/-01.0 1030
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.
