I get a few people visiting this site looking for snow and traffic advice in the winter.
You may find this previous post on Wales snow helpful.
I also find the UK Snow Map (http://uksnowmap.com/) site useful and fun. This is a mashup that monitors tweets in realtime and overlays the location and intensity over a Google map. You can see exactly where it is over the UK and how heavy it is. The website also gives you instructions on how you can format your own tweet so that snow in your area is picked up. It’s well worth looking at even for a bit of fun to see where the worst of the weather is.
You can see all the tweets that mention #uksnow here.
Well worth a look.
