Here's my seasonal contribution, a Ryanair B737-800 landing at an extremely cold and snow covered Bristol-Lulsgate back in 2013.

I'll go with one from Luton too. G-EZBV on 11th February 2012. I seem to remember the temperature being -8°C on this morning. People all over Facebook were moaning about the cold and staying in and I put on my snowboarding gear and went to photograph aeroplanes!

Not much in the way of snow/ice but there is a little. Interesting subject however Grumman HU-16B Albatross G-BMDX photographed at Plymouth/Roborough on the 6th February 1986.

D-ACNV Canadair CL-600-2D24 Regional Jet CRJ-900LR Eurowings/Lufthansa Regional Dusseldorf 9 December 2012. As I trudged in about -5 temperature from the CRJ that had just pulled onto the next stand to the waiting bus to take us to the terminal on a bleak late afternoon. Still makes me shiver.

The bright and sunny livery on this easyJet A319 about to be delivered to Allegiant was quite a contrast to the mist and snow one morning at Stansted in March 2018:
