Bored with weather coverage?

Eddie Mair | 06:42 UK time, Thursday, 3 January 2008

Finding that conditions are, for January, really rather unremarkable? Why not email a picture of the unremarkable conditions to pm@bbc.co.uk? We'll post the best ones here. Please mark your email: "JANUARY WEATHER".

0945 UPDATE:

Here is TV centre, captured moments ago. As you can see, the snow is deep and crisp and deep.

1205 UPDATE:

Carol (Otto's mummy) sends this snowbound shot:

Isobel says: "looking snowy in Rome too (this is the view from the roof of my office)

Jason has sent a picture in which the early morning frost makes part of the grass look frosty. It's much too white and so we cannot add it here.

1310:

Jess sends this scene from Leeds:

1325:

Teresa Frost (yes really) says: "Light dusting of snow in my garden near Folkestone - seems normal enough January weather to me."

The Intermittent Horse says: "Looks like I’m stuck at the office overnight unless this lot clears away"

1445: Through the snow you can perhaps make out some detail on this snap from Jonnie which apparently shows Bournemouth Pier looking westward toward Sandbanks and Poole.

Philipo writes:

"I have just taken delivery of 400 Euro Pallets, these are used to carry sand and gravel to builders merchants outlets in Brunstrom."

    Little by little I'm developing a serious dislike of the PM programme.

    Can you just stop filling up time and space with listeners' trivia, their postcodes, their bloody boring photographs of nothing, and do some proper journalism?

    It is quite funny, but... Talking of propper news.. A man re-making Star Wars in his garage with his son, is NOT international news! Well it could be for Myface.net or TubeMe.com, but not on the BBC.. Please pass along to the TV news and news.bbc.co.uk people..

    I'm thinking of going to the kitchen to make ANOTHER pot of tea.. Do you think that now I have posted this news on the web, I can expect a BBC news-sat truck to arrive and fit a camera in my kettle spout?

    I'm here, burning alive in this HOT tropical country, having to work without air conditioning. It's a pleasure to see these images from Uk in the winter. I resfresh my soul looking them.

    Ah, I've spotted the problem...

    Sense of humour? Barp-Barp!

    That's only the second time in my life I've been accused of lacking a sense of humour. The other time, the person who said it had attacked me with a knife, and was then arrested by the police! I still don't see what was funny about that, or about these photos.

    Plus it's been snowing off and on all day here in the North East of England, which makes the whole idea seem even more lame.

    No, I like a laugh Jason, anybody who actually knows me knows that, but something doesn't become funny purely because Mr Eddie Mair is involved. And I'd like to see him and the PM team, and indeed the whole of the BBC, making more of an effort with the serious side of their work. There are plenty of other sources of trivial humour, but very few sources of serious journalism.

    Bernie - Sense of humour you may have (hmm...), sense of proportion you certainly don't.

    Is there anything left that those bloody Eurocrats aren't messing with? Anyway, what's the difference between a good old pallet, and a euro one?

    Humph (11) But that IS where I left it! TD decided to brave the elements and has taken it to deepest Wolverhampton - and the silly girl forgot to put a shovel in the boot ;o)

    Bernie R - any chance of a photo of the snow?
