Slightly longer answer - snow at low levels during winter is not that common - maybe one year in three we see 1cm or so at sea level, and it doesn't stay more than a few days. About one year in ten we get a bit more snow, and it can last a bit longer. But there is no 'normal'.
Here's a couple of photos of today's snow at Roskhill...
